Portal del Priorat - Tros del Clos 2009

Quite vibrant dark ruby color, little rim variation. Ripe dark fruit, mature plum, lovely structure, bit of currant, very light raisin notes, lots of floral aspects, violet and cocoa notes, sweet orange peel, and oak vanilla, brett but doesn’t overwhelm. Full palate with primarily dark plum and currant notes, but an underlying green stalky tinge, very long finish, complementary acidity that really pushes the wine as the tannins are nearly full integration. Excellent for now, wonderfully balanced, and has more life in it yet.
