Before there were trophy wines and worldwide phenoms, there was Francesc Sanchez-Bas, making beautiful wines in Priorat when there were only 12 other wineries in the region. His principles of crafting developed, terroir-driven wines from his estate have never wavered despite the global clamor for giant, high alcohol wines of the region. He farms organically, harvests when the grapes reach peak ripeness, and keeps a traditional cellar, hand-pressing into wooden baskets and aging in neutral French oak for 8 months. Dark plum, blackberries and the classic gravelly minerality from the famed licorella soil fill a rich, plush palate that finishes with structure and building tannins.
