This Week's PREMIUM FLIGHT:
Enjoy a 2-oz pour of all three of these very special Spanish reds for only $23 (a value of over $39!) until they run out.
2006 Mas Alta La Creu Alta Priorat
Dense color with purple disk. The noise is very racy, sophisticated, and characteristic of very old vineyard's wine. Mineral notes, with subtle aromas of liquorice, spices and fresh herbs of Priorat. Powerful tannins, filling up the smooth with freshness and noteworthy long on the palate. Very expressive wine, among the bests of Spain's terroir. 60% Carinena and 40% Garnacha from vines over 100 years of age.
2008 Terra de Verema Triumvirat
The 2008 Terra de Verema Triumvirat is made by Ester Nin, vineyard manager of Clos Erasmus. It is a blend of 90% Carinena, 5% Garnacha, and 5% Syrah aged for 12 months in French oak. Dark ruby-colored with an already complex bouquet of pepper, Asian spices, mineral, and black cherry, on the palate it is supple, suave bordering on opulent, succulent, and very long. It can be approached now but will be more expressive with another 2-3 years of bottle age.

2005 Merum Priorati Osmin
(EXTREMELY LIMITED QUANTITIES)
The 2005 Osmin is 42% Garnacha, 25% Carinena, with the balance Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot which was aged in new French oak for 12 months. It is purple in color with a superb bouquet of pain grille, slate, pencil lead, blueberry, and blackberry. Ripe, concentrated, and full-flavored, this is a relatively forward Priorat. Drink now through 2020.
