    Only available on Wired For Wine, the Genium Celler Costers Priorat is "full-bodied, opulent, layered and loaded" according to Mr. Parker's Wine Advocate. Its ready to drink now and we have a few bottles. What are you waiting for??!

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  The 2007 Genium Costers is composed of 50% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, with the balance Merlot and Syrah. It was aged in 100% new French oak for 14 months before bottling without filtration. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up an already complex bouquet of pain grille, liquid mineral, Asian spices, incense, plum, and black cherry. Full-bodied, opulent, layered, and loaded, this large-scaled offering manages to remain light on its feet while displaying an exceptionally lengthy finish. Drink it from 2015 to 2027.

    Genium Celler began in 2002 when six families from the Priorat village of Poboleda joined forces." May 2011"

    Winery:  "This wine was made from grapes planted on slopes in the region, named “Costers” (dramatically steep land, 45 degrees, where no machine can be used), where the vineyards are practically a hundred years old, a fact that provides a repeatable minerality, concentration and structure in comparison to other zones. The grapes undergo a 48 hour pre-fermentation cold soak followed by temperature controlled fermentation between 84° F to 91° F in small stainless steel vats, and are macerated for a 30 day period. Aged in new French Allier oak barrels of various toasts and coopers for 14 months. Unfiltered.
     The goal of the winery is to produce wines with a typical character of Priorat based on the local Garnacha and Carinena. Having vineyards in three different zones of Priorat (Poboleda, La Morera del Montsant and Torroja del Priorat) allows for different character, tone, complexity and personality in the wines. Aging in oak is very important for the style of wine, as without it the wine would seem unfinished, but only light to medium toast is used so that wood flavors do not dominate."
