"The nose of the 2011 Petit Mas Sinén transported me to the 1990s when the reds from Priorat all smelled of wet slate and dry straw. This is a blend of Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot fermented separately and blended before the wine was put in barrel for a short élevage of six months. The barrels used are mostly French, but some 10% are made with American oak. The palate is full-bodied with some grippy tannins and full-flavors that are quite powerful and end quite long, lifted by the alcohol. Wait a bit. 9,000 bottles. - Luis Gutierrez"

"(45% garnacha, 30% carinena, 10% cabernet sauvignon, 10% syrah and 5% merlot): Bright violet color. A pungent, smoke-accented bouquet evokes fresh cherry and licorice, along with a strong floral overtone. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering open-knit dark fruit and rose pastille flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Subtle tannins add shape to the very long, sweet finish, which leaves zesty mineral and floral notes behind. - Josh Raynolds" - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (September 2014), 91 pts
"(45% garnacha, 30% carinena, 10% cabernet sauvignon, 10% syrah and 5% merlot): Vivid purple. Intensely perfumed, mineral-driven scents of redcurrant, raspberry, spicecake and violet, with a smoky overtone. Juicy and precise, offering lively red fruit flavors and a sexy floral pastille quality. Weightier on the clinging finish, which echoes the floral and smoke notes. - Josh Raynolds" - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (September 2013), 91 pts
