Full-bodied and rich on the palate, this red delivers a mouthful of currant, blackberry, toast, orange peel and loamy flavors. The muscular tannins clamp down on the finish. A bit rustic, but powerful. Best from 2015 through 2025. 1,300 cases made.-TM
 Vinous 93 points (Sep 2014)
(50% carinena, 39% garnacha and 11% cabernet sauvignon; aged for two years in French oak): Saturated ruby. Heady aromas of cherry, cassis, mocha, Indian spices and underbrush are sharpened by a smoky mineral quality. Juicy, sappy and concentrated, showing excellent density to its smoke-tinged flavors of blueberry, cherry-vanilla and candied flowers. A fleshy, expansive, sexy wine that shows the warmth of the vintage to good effect, finishing with strong mineral cut, smooth tannins and lingering smokiness.

Wine maker notes
This wine’s characteristic freshness comes from the altitude of the vineyard where its grapes are grown and reflects the essence of the Porrera terroir. Only the best grapes, carefully harvested by hand from our organically grown,biodynamically optimized vines, are used in our Clos Abella. Clos Abella is the perfect blend of the Priorat’s two indigenous varieties, Grenache (40%) and Carignan (40%), with an added touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Aged for 24 months in French oak barrels, Clos Abella is an elegant, complex wine, well-balanced and with a long, fresh finish. Clos Abella is matured in the bottle for at least two years before leaving our winery. Clos Abella is especially recommended as an accompaniment to tuna, and also marries well with all meats, particularly slow-cooked meat dishes in sauce, such as lamb in tomato sauce.
