Clos De L'Obac 2005 Priorat Red Wine, $38.24-$49.99, 93+ points, poured core black grading a slightly cloudy ruby then purple/red toward the broad clear wine ring.
For the second time in a week that amazing aroma of cinnamon/ginger spiced red cherry crossed my olfactory sense, but this one had lovely floral, cedar, and black fruit notes as well (as good as it gets).
The body was full, it was velvety, and mouth-wateringly acidic with firm buffered tannins.
Flavors of plum, black berries, black cherry cordial, and anise were excellent.
Finished long on truffle notes, tobacco, plum, anise, easy spices, and a well-balanced 14.5% alcohol.
