Clos 93, so called because it was the 93rd winery (or Clos) to register with the Consejo Regulador de Priorat, was created only 10 years ago by two brothers and their uncle; Rubén Sabaté (winemaker), Josep Sabaté and Pepo García, in whose house and garage they make the wines. The grapes themselves come from vines in the town of El Lloar, where they are just one of two wineries. With some 108 wineries now registered in Priorat, whilst Clos 93 may not be the newest winery, but it is officially recognised as Priorat’s smallest winery, producing just 12,500 bottles.
Reserved, firm, dark red fruit nose - a little grapey with blackcurrant, cooked raspberry and tomato leaf. It's dense and refined but not especially juicy, with really developed, fine and grippy tannins. Silky dark red fruits are followed by violets and damsons. Not as much of a fruit bomb as other years, but more classic, drier and savoury.
