The latest Wine Advocate has some killer scores for the 2006 Ferrer Bobet wines. This is only the second vintage for this incredible winery, and confirms that Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet are conjuring magic from the old vines in Priorat.
Ferrer Bobet Priorat 2006
“The fruit for the 2006 Ferrer Bobet was sourced from 100-year-old Garnacha and Carinena which account for 88% of the blend, the balance being Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of slate/mineral, scorched earth, lavender and roasted black fruits lead to a dense, rich, full-bodied wine with well-concealed ripe tannins. It will continue to open with another 2-3 years of cellaring and will offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2021.” 92 Wine Advocate
Ferrer-Bobet Selecció Especial 2006
“The 2006 Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial is 85% Carinena, 10% Garnacha, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 15 months in new French oak. It reveals a brooding bouquet of mineral, crushed stone, lavender, incense, and black fruit compote. Powerful on the palate, it will mellow a bit with another 2-3 years of cellaring and drink well through 2021.” 94 Wine Advocate
