Zachys

94+ Points, Zachys Buying Team: "Pronounced earthy-minerality on the nose right out of the bottle transports you to the steep black slate slopes of Porrera and the Finca les Planetes vineyard. On the palate the wine is generous, mouth-filling but never cloying or over-extracted - for a big wine it is light on its feet and displays nuances of tart cherries, plums, lavender, violets, licorice, charcoal, and spice. There is a "Vosne-Romanée way, very Burgundian overall and truly captivating" quality here, as the Wine Advocate once put it. Juicy, succulent, delicious - it screams the earthy, mineral side of Spain, with energy and depth. For this level of complexity - the Planetes de Nin is one of the great values in this prized region. Just 700 cases produced with a handful arriving in the US."

Wine Advocate

"94 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""Similarly, the 2014 Planetes de Nin is a blend of Garnacha and Cariñena, but the percentages were reversed, 40% of the former and 60% of the later; they had taken some Garnacha for the amphora wine and therefore the Planetes has less of it. It's ripe, a little heady (15.5% alcohol) but with good freshness and acidity. It matured in two large oak foudres and amphorae for 17 months. It might not be your typical Porrera, because it's certainly a lot more elegant, perfumed and refined. The palate is equally elegant, with subtle minerality and great freshness."" 10/16"
