"The 2009 Mas Sinen Negre is a blend of 40% Carinena, 35% Garnacha, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah from Poboleda, aged for 12 months in American and French oak. It has a ripe bouquet of black cherries, raspberry, soy and lavender with a slight smudge of alcohol. The palate is full-bodied and rich with mouth-gripping tannins, though fortunately there is just enough acidity to keep it in balance. The finish is dry and just a little coarse. This is a brawny, bold Priorat but one that is well-made by winemaker Toni Coca. Drink 2016-2025+ - Neal Martin"
