COMA VELLA 2014 DOCa Priorat
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MAS D'EN GIL
NEW in Vintages, this somewhat rustic 2014 Priorat is a blend of 70% Garnacha , 20% Cariñena and 10% Syrah that was aged in a variety of oak barrels and vats for one year. it has a deep purple colour and a gently complex, slightly earthy, red licorice and sandalwood-tinged, plummy nose with some mineral notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, rather dense and still youthful with fairly ripe plum fruit with some slightly earthy, sandalwood notes on the lingering finish. It has 15 alcohol and 1 g/L residual sugar with lots of 14 --072 on the back label. Best served in a large non-ISO glass which will liberate more of the fruit and soften the tannins. CSPC 18938

TASTING NOTE: The red 2014 Coma Vella feels a tad rustic in the context of the 2016s, which show great finesse. It is a blend of Garnacha with 20% Cariñena and 10% Syrah from the Coma Valley within the Mas d'en Gil property. It fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak vats, and the wine matured in 225-, 1,500- and 3,000-liter oak barrels and vats for one year. It has some earthy notes reminiscent of the dusty Priorat roads, integrated oak and good ripeness but without excess. The palate is medium-bodied with dusty tannins and a dry, serious and mineral finish. Impressive. 35,658 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2016. It's evolving quite slowly.
