Description:

Clos Mogador 2005
Priorat
"The 2005 Clos Mogador is the first wine in Spain entitled to the new classification of 'Vi de finca Qualificada'. The estate is 20 hectares composing a single vineyard. The Garnacha wines are 80+ years of age while the other varieties (Carinena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah) have been planted since the early 1980s. Average yields are under 10 hectoliters per hectare and only 2000 cases are produced. The winery has never purchased outside fruit. The wine is deep purple-colored with a superb bouquet of toasty oak, pencil lead, mineral, blackberry and black cherry. This leads to an opulent, dense, packed, structured wine with 6-8 years of aging potential. Super-concentrated, sweetly-fruited, and complex, this tour de force of a wine will drink well from 2012 to 2040." J.Miller for R. Parker, 98 pts. 02/08
6 bottles (owc)
Estimate $350-550
