PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:One of only two Spanish wine regions to hold the country's top-tier DOCa classification (similar in prestige to Italy's DOCG designation), the Priorat has a terroir ideal for grape cultivation: a hot, dry climate, wide diurnal temperature variations, and soil, known as llicorella, which is made from partially decomposed slate and quartz.

Today's wine is a new custom cuvée from importer and consulting winemaker extraordinaire Eric Solomon. Coster dels Olivers is a blend of 60% carinyena, 30% garnacha, and 10% cabernet sauvignon. A combination of younger vine fruit, a relatively cooler northwestern exposure of the vineyards, a high percentage of carinyena, and 12 months of aging in well-seasoned French and Hungarian oak barrels, ensures a brighter and juicier style of Priorat made for immediate enjoyment.

92 points, Jeb Dunnuck:
"Based largely on carignan, with 30% garnacha and 10% cabernet sauvignon, the 2018 Priorat has a big, smoky nose of mulled red and black fruits, graphite, flowers, and new leather. This carries to a medium-to-full-bodied wine with terrific tannins (especially for Carignan), a balanced, elegant texture, no hard edges, and a great finish." (3/22/21)
