Product Overview

The 2014 Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles Priorat is a blend of Carignane and Grenache from hundred year old vines in some of the best steep slate hillside and terraced vineyards in Priorat. The vineyards are managed in strict organic viticultural philosophy which completely excludes the use of insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides. The grapes grow on vineyard sites with steep terraces and hillsides. Grapes are picked by hand into small 10kg bins, and selected berry by berry on a double sorting table before being transferred to tanks by gravity.

Varietal Composition: 70% Carignane, 30% Grenache
Appellation: Priorat DO
Aging: 18 months in French oak, then a minimum of 11 months in bottle prior to release

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2014 Vinyes Velles is a beautiful wine, and certainly up with the crème de la crème in the vintage. Based on 70% Carinyana and 30% Garnacha aged 15 months in French oak, it sports a crazy purple color as well as sensational notes of plums, liquid violets, blackberries, graphite, and a damp earth-like minerality. This full-bodied, incredibly pure Priorat has integrated acidity, a sexy, layered texture, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. It’s an awesome expression of Carinyana to enjoy over the coming decade." -JD

94 Points, "Highly Recommended" - Wine Spectator
"The tender texture masks serious density and a deep core of black cherry, red plum and mountain herb flavors. Well-integrated tannins and fresh but discreet acidity give this tensile strength. Focused, energetic and alluring. Drink now through 2024. 315 cases imported." -TM, 11/30/17

94 Points - Vinous
"Deep, brilliant violet color. Mineral-accented dark berry liqueur, incense and spicecake aromas are complemented by suggestions of mocha, licorice and candied violet. Seamless and precise on the palate, showing impressive depth to its sweet, mineral-inflected blackberry, cherry-vanilla, cola, spicecake and violet pastille flavors. The mineral quality carries emphatically through a youthfully tannic, impressively persistent finish that echoes the floral and spice notes." -JR, Apr/2019

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Vinyes Velles, which means "old vines" in the Catalan language, is a blend of 70% Cariñena and 30% Garnacha from vines planted on slopes ("costers") and terraces, mostly facing northeast. It fermented in stainless steel and oak vats and aged in French oak barriques for 15 months. It is harmonious, ripe without excess, nuanced and balanced, with power and elegance and nicely integrated oak. It's textured and shows intense flavors, with good depth and a backbone of fresh acidity that lifts it up. It was bottled unfiltered and unfined in April 2016. 25,000 bottles produced." -LG, 4/27/18
