Clos Figueras Font de la Figuera Priorat 2018
The vineyard was purchased at the recommendation of René Barbier of Clos Mogador and it is maintained and vinified by his team each year. A complete lack of fruit is replaced by earthy aromas of old gnarled vines baking in the sun. 58% Garnacha, 25% Carignan, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Syrah provide tasted aromas with dried herbs, red cherries, and desert underbrush. The aromas and weight come across more Syrah like than a juicy Garnacha. Old world all the way.
