1997 Rotllan Torra "Tirant" Priorat

SKU #1215686 95 points Wine Spectator

 Powerful and intense, this Spanish red is as ripe and rich as young Vintage Port, bursting with flavors of black cherries and blueberries, chocolate and coffee, supported by muscular yet round tannins. An impressive achievement in an age of blockbuster wines. Best after 2003. 500 cases made. (TM)  (6/2001)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The superb, opaque purple-colored 1997 Tirant exhibits sweet, concentrated, jammy fruit intertwined with notions of asphalt, pepper, liquid minerals, and subtle spicy wood. A full-bodied, powerful effort, it requires 2-3 years of cellaring, but should last for 12-15. (RP)  (8/2001)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Full red-ruby. Sappy, floral aromas of red berries, rose petal, minerals and nutty, vanillin oak. Thick but vinous, with nuanced flavors of plum, redcurrant, tobacco and grilled nuts. Quite spicy and strong on the back end. (ST)  (7/2000)
