Product Description

Clos Mogador is one of only two Priorat wines to receive the Vi de Finca Qualificada. In 2006, Clos Mogador was the first wine to receive this prestigious qualification in the whole of Spain. It certifies that all grapes used to make this wine over at least the last five years have been sourced from the Clos Mogador single vineyard (five years which can be documented and traced), and at the same time is awarded to a wine which has received international acclaim over at least the last ten years.

The 2014 Clos Mogador continues the string of exceptional releases, offering aromas of ripe red and black fruits layered with dried herbs, licorice, toast, spice, and chocolate. The elegant palate shows rich berry fruit and spice layered over black pepper and smoke.

Varietal Composition: 49 Garnacha, 25 Carinena, 16 Syrah, 10 Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Priorat DOCa
Aging: 18 months in 300-liter casks and 2000-liter foudre

98 Points - Wine Advocate
"The blend of the top-of-the-range and flagship red changes with the vintage. The 2014 Clos Mogador is 49% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena, 16% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard that names the wine (and the winery), planted on llicorella slate soils at 350 meters in altitude. Eighty percent of the vines are 25 to 35 years old. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and had a 35- to 45-day maceration, followed by an élevage in 300-liter barrels and 2,000-liter foudres that lasted 18 months. They introduced oak foudres in 2011, which is the big change, and they use less and less barriques now. They are also using more and more Cariñena and Garnacha, but it depends on the vintage. All of the more recent wines have less tannins from the oak and less Cabernet Sauvignon, and they feel more elegant and balanced. There is great harmony on the palate, with very fine tannins and a velvety texture with great seriousness. This will develop at a very slow pace in bottle. They picked the grapes before the rains, and it's a concentrated year with nice extract but very good acidity. 31,000 bottles were filled in late June 2016." -LG, 4/27/18

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Lively and expressive, this red delivers ripe cherry and boysenberry flavors, backed by mountain herb, licorice and mineral notes. The rich texture is balanced by lively acidity and fine-grained tannins. There's plenty of stuffing, but the wine remains graceful and fresh. Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2026. 2,100 cases made." -TM, 4/30/17
