FS: 2007 Clos Pissarra El Riu (Priorat from owners of Miura)

Made by the folks who own Miura. This line of wines is on W-S Pro from $90-120/bt
Selling 24bt @ $59 ea

"El Riu (meaning "The River" in Catalan) is a 1 hectare vineyard (2.5 acres) in the town of El Molar in Priorat. We purchased this property at the end of 2004. This is an unusual vineyard in Priorat, as it sits on a slight slope above the Siurana River and although it is full of slate as is typical in the region, there is also a lot of gravel here, which is quite uncommon. The vineyard is planted to Carignan (Samso) vines that are over 100 years old! Yields are less than half a ton per acre. The 2007: Compared to La Vinyeta, El Riu is fuller-bodied and more tannic, perhaps being more powerful and rich if less elegant. It is quite rare to see bottlings made up of just Carignan, as by itself it rarely makes special wine anywhere. Anywhere, that is, except for in Priorat where these old vines produce a world class wine. 77 cases produced."
