Robert Parker 100
more about ratings
The flagship 2007 Clos Erasmus is once again a benchmark against which all other Prioratos must be measured. For the first time, no Cabernet Sauvignon was used in the blend; it consists of 90% Garnacha and 10% Syrah with the ultimate goal being 100% Garnacha. It was fermented in a small, open top wood fermenter followed by 22 months in new French oak. Purple-colored, it displays a super complex aromatic array that soars from the glass. Mineral, espresso, truffle, underbrush, white pepper, Asian spices, black cherry and plum are just a few of the notes that come to mind. Dense and rich, on the palate, licorice and chocolate make an appearance with the oak totally integrated. Creamy and suave with no hard edges but plenty of underlying structure, it will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2032 if not longer. It is a tour de force! Laurel is produced from the young vines of Clos Erasmus as well as from the results of a triage in the vineyard and cellar of the flagship wine.
