From: Priorat, Spain
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: Finca La Planeta is six acres of mature Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in the gravelly mountain terroir. The concentration of all factors is evident in the 2013 Priorat Finca La Planeta: minerals, herbs, black fruit, and oak spice. Distinctively clear-cut and elegant style for Priorat.
The Pasanau family are perennial growers in Priorat, with vineyards located in the highest municipality of the region, literally skirting the sheer rock wall of the Sierra de Montscant, which forms the Priorat's viticulture boundary to its north and west.
At over 2,400 feet, Pasanau's "Finca La Planeta" dominates the regional landscape and experiences Priorat's widest daily temperature variation. This helps to retain freshness in the concentrated, late-harvested grapes, resulting in a uniquely tight-knit, albeit typically powerful Priorat style. The long, arid growing season, as elsewhere in Priorat, severely limits yields while packing the fruit with mineral extract and complexity.
