Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2015 Manyetes Vi de Vila Gratallops, a village Cariñena, is produced with grapes from old vines from a zone in Gratallops where the grape thrives (though the village is better known for Garnacha). It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 300-liter barriques and 2,000-liter foudres for 18 months. Starting with the 2011 vintage, this wine is made with only Cariñena, which comes from a single vineyard that they recently purchased after 15 years of leasing it. And they even bought an additional hectare that they didn't work before, so they will be able to grow a little bit more after 2018. This is always a very fresh wine from a very warm place. It has some graphite and wet slate notes with a marked personality early on. The first Cariñena grapes were picked the first week of September. 4,700 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2017.

Deep, lurid ruby. An expansive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red/blue fruits, candied violet, smoked meat, licorice and exotic spices, with a minerally topnote that builds in the glass. Offers deeply concentrated, palate-staining blackberry, boysenberry, bitter cherry and licorice flavors that turn livelier and spicier on the back half. Manages to come off muscular and lively at the same time and finishes extremely long and precise, with resonating florality and steadily mounting tannins. While it's clearly a baby this is a very promising wine.

Region Priorat: Coming from the autonomous community of Catalonia, Priorat reds are some of the most powerful and commanding wines on the market today. Their sheer strength and rich, intense flavor have earned them a spot in many collectors' cellars, as well as a part in some of the most grandiose feasts ever arranged. The winemakers' ability to bring out the full potential of Garnacha Tinta, Garnacha Peluda, Cabernet Sauvignon and other red varietals is legendary, and their whites aren't far behind, making use of the unique flavor and intensity of Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, and more. The environment these grapes are grown in is notoriously difficult to tame, posing a challenge for even the most experienced winemaking veterans. However, should they succeed, the rewards are majestic, with a flavor bouquet combining tar, licorice, and strong, brandied cherries. There really isn't anything like these wines in any other region, and so collectors from around the globe keep a close eye on this community and its glorious produce. There's something inimitable about fine Priorat, something calculated yet not fully bound by logic, like an elixir from some old alchemical myth. Should you wish to add a Priorat bottle or two to your collection, we're here to help you out. As a premium wine retailer, we've assembled a careful selection of the most groundbreaking Priorat wines!
Type of Wine Spain Red: Spanish wines shouldn't be overlooked under any circumstances, as there are plenty of extraordinary wines coming from this country. There are also lots of grape varietals grown all over Spain. Some of the most gorgeous red varieties are the early-harvested Tempranillo, raspberry-flavored Garnacha, Bobal, Monastrell, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot.
