Bodegas Mas Alta Le Creu Alta Priorat 2010
Other Reds | Spain
About The Producer
The estate's top wine and a blend of 60% Carignan and 40% Garnacha, from vines between 80-100 years in age, that is aged for 18 months in 80% new French oak, the 2010 La Creu Alta is the inkiest colored and richest of the trio and delivers spectacular aromatics of liquid mineral, smoked black fruits, Mexican chocolate, Peking duck, and licorice. Deep, layered, and downright exotic aromatically, with more Carignan nut shell, old leather, and motor oil qualities coming through with air, this full-bodied Priorat is pure silk on the palate, showing a elegant, ethereal texture, awesome concentration, and polished underlying structure. As with the other cuvees, it is superb now, yet will benefit from short term cellaring. It should have upwards of two decades or more of total longevity.
