Tasting Note:

The lowest of Sara's three vineyards, planted at extremely high density by her father and with naturally very low yields, is Clos Martinet; a blend of 65% Garnacha, 18% Carignan, 11% Syrah and small quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the great wines of Priorat, the 2016 stands apart from the rest of the range for its depth and concentration. Glossier, suaver and finer more detailed dark fruit coats the palate, the tannins more like velvet. Opulent plum, blackcurrant, mocha and a trace of supporting oak on the palate, it finishes with a hallmark salty stony character and rich, dark spices. Smooth, dark chocolatey cherries and lacy tannins, this needs time to unfurl and shed weight with a bit of bottle of age. Wonderful.
