Clos Martinet Priorat 2003
|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Clos Martinet ratchets it up to another level. Opaque purple in color, it has an expressive nose of vanilla, scorched earth, plums, black cherries, and blueberries. Medium to full-bodied, on the palate it is nearly seamless with light, ripe and well integrated tannin. The finish is long and pure. Give this elegant Priorat 1-3 additional years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10.
Wine SpectatorPlum, garrigue and coffee notes mingle in this solid red. Not polished, but expressive, with enough structure to match with food. Drink now through 2011.
