2005 Clos de l'Obac Priorat DOQ
Clos de l’Obac is a wine of extraordinary power, structure and complexity. These characteristics are the result of the diversity of orientations and altitudes of seven vineyards (of a total of eight), which are located around the town of Gratallops and planted with vines of the grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, syrah, merlot and cariñena varieties. In this way, while the old cariñena and grenache vines (planted over 50 years ago) give this wine its unmistakable Priorat character, the other varieties assure its unique personality based on a balance of strength and finesse.
95 points, Wine Spectator. "This shows lovely harmony and polish. Dense plum and blackberry fruit mingle with chocolate, mountain herbs and mineral. Firm tannins and lively acidity give it balance. Drink now through 2035."
