Cims de Porrera Solanes DOC 2007

Because of the rising number of (high) quality wines, Priorato is a region with growing attention. For people, who would like to take a look at it, we recommend this beauty:

This blend (50% Carinena, 20% Granacha, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5 Syrah) is dark violet in the glass, almost black. In the nose polished flavours of (sour) cherry, plum and liquorice. On the palate good polish and density with cherry, plum and liquorice, sustained by fresh acidity. Very "dirty-styled" on the following days. Medium to full bodied, soft tannins and a good aftertaste. Best buy! Drink: 2013-2020.
Rating: 91 points.

Diese Cuvée (50% Carinena, 20% Granacha, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot und 5% Syrah) besitzt eine dunkelviolette, fast schwarze Farbe. In der Nase wie geschliffene Aromen von (Sauer-)Kirsche, Pflaume und Lakritze. Im Mund guter Schliff und gute Dichte mit Kirsche, Pflaume und Lakritze, gestützt von frischer Säure. Sehr "schmutzig" an den Folgetagen. Mittlerer bis voller Körper, sanfte Tannine und ein guter Abgang.

If you liked the entry level, the Casa Gran del Siurana Gran Cruor (2007) or the Cims de Porrera "Classic" Caranyena / "Classic" Garnatxa should be your next choice. Enjoy!
