A saturated color and warm aromas of blackberry jam, prune and schist open this always impressive high-elevation Priorato. A rugged palate blends ripeness with freshness, while dark-plum and blackberry flavors are fairly massive, as is usually the case with La Planeta. On the finish, this Garnacha-Cabernet Sauvignon blend calms down and ends with chocolate notes. Editor's Choice
Vivid ruby-red. Ripe red berry, rose pastille and pipe tobacco scents are complemented by building mineral and vanilla accents. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering juicy cassis and bitter cherry flavors that deepen and turn sweeter as the wine stretches out. Finishes with smoky mineral thrust, chewy, slow-building tannins and impressive, spice- and mineral-driven persistence.
Finca La Planeta is six acres of mature Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in the gravelly mountain terroir. Concentration of all factors is evident in the 2013 Priorat Finca La Planeta: minerals, herbs, black fruit and oak spice. Distinctively clear-cut and elegant style for Priorat.
