If the Planetes was impressive, wait for the 2012 Nit de Nin, which is a similar wine but at two levels of intensity, depth and elegance above. It's also a single-vineyard wine from a very old plot in Porrera in the Mas d'en Cacador vineyard at some 500 meters altitude on an impressive slope planted with very old vines on slate soils. It's approximately 60% Garnacha Peluda (which is a different strain producing lighter-colored wines with higher acidity than the regular Garnacha) and the rest Carinena. The wine is pure, perfumed, intoxicating even, floral and spicy, intense and captivating.The palate is highly refined, with pure flavors, great freshness, completely focused, nothing blurry at all in there, generous but fine at the same time. It ends very tasty, with a saline minerality. I had the chance to visit the vineyard on my last night in Priorat, and when you see it you understand that it HAS to produce great wine. Simply superb. Drink or keep. 4,000 bottles were filled in March 2014. Jun 2015, www.robertparker.com
