Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2017 Planetes de Nin comes from the four hectares of 20-year-old Garnacha and 11-year-old Cariñena in the Planetes vineyard in Porrera at 450 meters in altitude. It's 60% Garnacha (some of it Peluda) and the rest Cariñena, harvested early. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 3,200-liter oak vats and one 1,000-liter amphora for 17 months. It has depth and harmony, and the vines are getting older and seem to be better and better balanced. This is not that different from the 2016; it feels quite stable and has its style and character, especially since the 2015 vintage. 9,704 bottles were filled in April 2019.

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.

Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
