About
Details

Vines, like people, often reach their peak in the face of adversity. This highly limited cuvée is hand made from 100-year-old vines that suffer daily to survive in dense slate soils on steep hillsides. Their fruit offers a unique mineral complexity that could come from no other place on earth and has done so since Carthusian monks first planted vines in Priorat in the 12th century (Priorat is the Catalan word for 'priory'). Serve Gran Clos with any grilled meat—especially beef and lamb—Serrano ham or aged cheeses such as Parmigiano, Manchego and Cheddar.

16 months in oak barrels (95% French, 5% American).
Grapes
50% Garnacha, 40% Cariñena, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Picked September 1–October 1, 2001.
Tasting Notes
Deep red color. Intense aroma of ripe blackberries, blueberries and plums, with spicy balsamic notes. Well balanced and expressive, with concentration of elegant ripe tannins. Tastes of ripe blackberries, blueberries and black plums. Shades of licorice, wild herbs and minerals. Long, persistent finish with an aftertaste of pleasant fruit.
