2010 Morlanda Priorat

Morlanda is located in Bellmunt del Priorat and was founded in 1997, although the vineyards that surround the modern winery are much older. With 170 acres of land, only 47 are planted vineyards, many of which are 25 to 40 years old. The Morlanda vines typically yield under 1.25 tons per acre, low even for Priorat standards. The elevation is between 550 and 700 feet. The name of the winery is taken from the name of the highest hill in the area. The estate produces about 3,300 cases of wine annually.

TASTING NOTES

Color: Intense, deep red with flashes of garnet.
Aroma: Intense opening aromas. A wine with many nuances, particularly complex. There are notes of ripe black fruits such as plum, and also some licorice, both of which balance well the aromas drawn from its long, careful aging in French oak barrels, delivering toasty notes, some tobacco, cedar wood and some light, spicy touches.
Palate: Very flavorsome. Very well structured thanks to its soft ripe tannins. The palate to displays flavors of toast and of ripe black fruits. A very long finish – a wine to be sipped and savored.
