En Numeros Vermells Classic Priorat Negre 2013 En Numeros Vermells Classic Priorat Negre 2013

715 bottles made, 384 imported.  As in 2011 and 2012, Silvia’s “Classic” Priorat is, well, “Classic.”  A blend of 65% Garnatxa, 30% Syrah, and 5% Carinyena fermented in open-top 300 liter and 500 liter French oak and then aged 13 months in those same barrels (with the tops back on).  It’s very young now and still a little shy on the nose and compacted on the palate, although the intensity, balance, and velvety texture are all easy to appreciate now.  My note from first tasting with Jonas:

“Dark and spicy fruit, long and rich, amazing power and then amazing finesse.  A “wow wine” with loads of dark, rich, fruit, powerful tannins, and a generous helping of Priorat graphite and slate.  Shockingly supple and sophisticated for its size.  What terrior (sense of place) is.  All in balance.”  Give this 2 or 3 years and enjoy for 20.

"Opaque ruby. An array of intense, mineral-accented dark berry liqueur and floral pastille scents, along with hints of anise, cola and woodsmoke. Sweet, penetrating and pure on the palate, offering concentrated boysenberry and blueberry flavors that are lifted and given spine by tangy acidity. The extremely long finish blends power and elegance with a deft hand, with fine-grained tannins making a late and subtle appearance."  <b>Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points
