Familia Nin-Ortiz 'Planetes de Nin' 2011 (4.0/5)


Notes: It appears medium+ ruby with good slow tears. On the nose it's clean offering with medium intensity cherries raspberries and liquorice with a very Garnacha signature. It comes from Porrera (it's actually Porrera's first Vi de Vila) but lacks the strong mineral character that is quite common feature of many wine coming from the north part of Priorat, where usually Carinena is dominant with respect to Garnacha (contrary to this wine). Still it's very respectful of the terroir.
On the palate is dry, with medium acidity, medium tannins, high (but amazingly hidden) alcohol, medium+ body and good flavour intensity, round mid-palate. Medium finish. 
Very-Good quality, It is ready to drink but may gain some complexity with few years in bottle, Premium Price. 70% Grenache, 30% Carignan, Porrera, Priorat, Spain.
