"The 2008 Ferrer/Bobet is a vibrant offering with an expressive nose of cedar, spicy black fruits, exotic spices, and lavender. Only time will tell whether the 2009 is better than this beauty."

"Saturated ruby. A highly perfumed, seductive bouquet features candied red and dark berries, cola, incense and violet, with mineral and star anise accents. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and cherry flavors show a suave blend of richness and vivacity and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Fine-grained tannins build on a finish that's sweet, focused and very long. This wine is balanced and concentrated for the long haul."
"Ferrer/Bobet is the future showplace of Priorat. No expense has been spared in the construction of a magnificent winery and in the planting of the vineyards. Sergi Ferrer-Salat is a young pharmaceutical tycoon with apparently a much greater interest in fine wine than drugs, while his partner Raul Bobet was the long-time winemaker at Torres. Ferrer-Salat makes it clear that his goal is to make the greatest wine possible without regard to whether he makes money. I’m not sure if Bobet would totally agree, but it appears that he is up for the challenge. As for the wines, they are currently made from purchased fruit as the Ferrer-Bobet vineyards are still very young. However, money talks and the winery has been able to access great old-vine Carignan and Grenache fruit, enough so that they might have some difficulty surpassing what they have already achieved when their vineyard matures. Currently two wines are made, the Ferrer/Bobet cuvee and the Seleccio Especial. The 2006s have previously been reviewed, the 2007s are currently in the market, and the 2008s will follow shortly." ~ Winery notes
