Clos I Terrasses Clos Erasmus Magnum 2010 (Spain: Priorat)

Name Clos I Terrasses Clos Erasmus Magnum 2010
Varietal Priorat
Region Spain: Priorat
Notes "What I see from the bottle is really superb. There are showy, ripe aromas, of bright black and red cherry notes and even some reminiscences of blood orange with imperceptible oak. The texture is silky with a lacy filigree, soft and sophisticated but with an earthy, call it rustic if you want, side that makes it very Priorat. There is an incredible level of tension and polishing in the tannins, they are extremely fine-grained. One of the most elegant and balanced Erasmus ever." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

1.5 liters (one magnum). Drink now through 2025. "An intensely perfumed bouquet displays scents of black raspberry, redcurrant, Asian spices and incense, with slow-building floral and mineral qualities. Sweet, concentrated and polished, with silky texture and noteworthy intensity to its sappy red fruit and violet pastille flavors. Finishes sweet, spicy and extremely long, with relentless flavors of red berries, minerals and candied flowers. This wine's blend of power and finesse is something else." (Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar)
