The 2010 Clos Martinet is 65% Garnacha, 18% Carinena, 12% Syrah and the rest a combination of Cabernet and Merlot that changes with the vintage. It feels closer to the Cami Pesseroles than the Escurcons, which Sara tells me is because of the altitude rather than the varietal mix, with aromas of black fruit, crushed violets and plenty of balsamic notes of Mediterranean herbs, shoe polish, soy sauce, malt, peat and wet slate. The palate is medium to full-bodied and shows silky tannins with tension and power. 2010 is one of the best vintages for Clos Martinet, which is, year in, year out, great value at the top of the Priorat hierarchy. Drink 2014-2022. (LG)
Opaque violet. Pungent, mineral-laced dark berry and violet aromas, with notes of licorice, black tea and allspice adding complexity. Stains the palate with intense black and blue fruit flavors, which put on weight and become spicier with air. Concentrated yet lithe Priorat wine with outstanding finishing clarity and supple tannins that fold smoothly into the densely packed berry fruit. (JR)
