In Northeastern Spain, within the Catalonia area, is a small wine region known as Priorat. These intense full-bodied wines are made of Grenache & Carinena. They are recognized worldwide for being a top quality Spanish wine.
 
The Spanish wine rating system has a top tier, DOCa, and only two regions in all of Spain hold this classification: Rioja and Priorat. Part of what earned the region this rating is the exceptionally low yields of the vines. The less fruit a vine produces, the more concentrated the juice. This lends a hand in the creation of these full-bodied, well-extracted, and deep flavored reds. 
 
Two factors contribute to these low yields. First, the vines in Priorat are normally very old. The other reason is the extremely poor soil called llicorella. The soil holds very little nutrients and water drains from it instantly. Weeds don't even grow in it.  However, vines have been growing since the 12th century in this region.
 
Mas Sinen produces 3 Priorat wines. Today's wine, the Coster Reserve is their top selection. The nose holds smoke with dark fruit aromas mixed with spice. The palate is powerful and concentrated with heavy flavors of dark cherry, cassis, and raspberry flavors. Tannins are well intregrated and provide a fleshly mouthfeel on the lengthy finish.
 
Drink this one now or toss in the cellar for 10+ years.

Mas Sinen Coster Reserve Priorat 2010



(half garnacha and half carinena): Vivid purple. Explosive dark fruit preserve and incense aromas show excellent clarity, picking up cola, mineral and Indian spice notes with air. Stains the palate with intense black and blue fruit flavors, with juicy acidity adding lift and cut. Rich yet energetic and precise, finishing very long, on an emphatic mineral note and with fine-grained tannins sneaking in late."
