2010 Clos Pissarra El Ramon Red Blend Priorat Spain
El Ramon (meaning the one known as Ramon in Catalan) refers to Ramon Marco who is our vineyard manager. This wine is made up of three vineyards all in the town of Bellmunt del Priorat, and in close proximity to each other. The wine is made up of primarily Grenache (50%), about 25% Carignan (Samso in Catalan), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. The vineyards are on very steep hillsides, and the only thing you see on the ground is slate (locally known as licorella) as is typical in the region. Yields are typically less than a ton per acre.
Compared to the challenges we faced in 2009, 2010 turned out to be a much milder vintage with sufficient rain in the spring together with a mild summer that gave us very even ripening grapes.

Emmanuel Kemiji is a Master Sommelier born in the US but raised in Madrid. He is also owner of Miura Vineyards in California. He started a small project in Priorat back in 2003 with some partners, including some friends from his time at the Ritz Carlton, some chefs, Sylvain Portay, Gerald Hirigoyen, Laurent Manrique and even some celebrities like Antonio Banderas. The project has kept a low profile and I previously had only heard the name but had never actually tasted the wines. They produce wines from Montsant and Priorat, as they own vineyards in both appellations, but none is subject to the official appellation of origin. The winery is located in the outskirts of Falset. Lisa Perroti-Brown met Kemiji in California and she was impressed by the wines from Priorat and got me in contact with him. I'm glad she did...
