Wine Spectator 93

"Clos Mogador is an amphitheater of vines overlooking the Siurana River. The site was originally planted to garnacha and some cariñena more than 80 years ago. The Barbier family added syrah and cabernet when they arrived in the late seventies. This new vintage, a blend of all four varieties, is intense and profound, filled with ripe red cherry flavors and violet scents over a base of tense, tight tannins. This deserves at least ten years of aging. Europvin USA, Van Nuys, CA"

Tasting Notes:
Vivid and deep-red color with a violet hue. Its brilliance isvery attractive and transmits the strength and potential evolution of the wine. In the nose it displays pure red and bluish fresh fruit, notes of fennel and fragrant aromas like a cluster of violets, with cassis, black fruit and also espresso that transmits a lot of energy. When swirling the glass, mature notes such as marmalade appear, with aromatic herbals that provide freshness and minerality. It is a very complex wine, forming different layers and expressing all sensorial aromatics at a high level. In the mouth it has soft tannins that fill the palate with a juicy fruit finish. After a few minutes in the glass, glamorous red fruit notes come up, and the eleganceof its gentle acidity and tannins make the wine silkier and smoother.
