Vinedos De Ithaca Akyles Priorat 2009 Product #26419 (In Stock)
Vinedos De Ithaca Akyles Priorat 2009 Vinedos De Ithaca Akyles Priorat 2009

Silvia Puig makes Akyles with the fruit of yonger vines growing on steeply sloped vineyards covered in Priorat’s distinctive shattered red and black slate called “llicorella.”  It’s a blend of 45% Garnatxa Negre and Garnatxa Peluda (“hairy Grenache”) plus 40% Carinena and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.  The 2009 aged for 10 months in 400 liter used French oak barrels and has now had nearly 3 years in bottle to soften and open up.

Now the layered aromas of lavender, violets, and purple plum and berry fruit burst from the glass.  In the mouth, the texture and shape of the wine are exiting, with mouthcoating, lush, fruit over notes of melted rock, slate, bitter chocolate and just a hint of mint.  While the fruit is sweet and ripe, the acidity and minerality make this a savory wine of great focus and detail.  The bright acids and supple tannins flow all the way to the end where a bitter chocolate note lingers.  The kind of “serious” wine that’s fun to drink and makes you come back again and again.

"Glass-staining ruby. Spicy cherry, blackberry and cracked pepper on the nose, with a subtle incense quality adding complexity. Bright and energetic for the vintage, owing to sharply focused dark berry and floral pastille flavors and zesty spiciness. A suggestion of violet candy builds on a mildly tannic finish of black pepper and floral notes."International Wine Cellar 92 points

Vinedos De Ithaca  Px Pedro Ximenez Priorat 2011 Vinedos De Ithaca  Px Pedro Ximenez Priorat 2011

It's hard to find words to explain just how good this unusual white Priorat is.  Sylvia Puig has created a complex, exotic, dry white that will blow your mind at table. Complex aromas of mineral driven spiced white peach and peppered lemon zest float out of the glass. Delicious round flavors of yellow pear, white raisin and almonds. The finish is pretty much endless.  Yes, it's really worth the price.

Petite winemaker Silvia Puig once again delivers a brilliant pairing of monstrous structure with striking purity of fruit and focus in her 2009 flagship Priorat.  Aromas and flavors of sweet red and dark berry fruit with notes of warm slate, spice, and a touch of black tea.  The bright acidity makes your mouth water, lifts the flavors, and creates striking delineation in this brilliant, intense, red.

Vinedos De Ithaca Odysseus Priorat 2004 Product #20799 (In Stock)
Vinedos De Ithaca Odysseus Priorat 2004 Vinedos De Ithaca Odysseus Priorat 2004

Another brilliant wine from Silvia Puig, and drinking beautifully right now!

"Youthful purple color. Red- and blackcurrant on the nose, with suave incense, cocoa and floral qualities. Tightly wound on entry but gains flesh and sweetness in the middle palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and silky texture. Nicely focused, low-fat wine with very good back-end lift and finishing minerality. The tannins are nicely hidden by the fresh fruit. Much more about finesse than power, and ready to drink."International Wine Cellar 92 points
