"The 2014 Vinyes Velles is a beautiful wine, and certainly up with teh creme de la creme in the vintage. Based on 70% Carinyena and 30% Garnacha aged 15 months in French oak, it sports a crazy purple color as well as sensational notes of plums, liquid violets, blackberries, graphite, and a damp earth-like minerality. This full-bodied, incredibly pure Priorat has integrated acidity, a sexy, layered texture, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. It's an awesome expression of Carinyena to enjoy over the coming decade."
96 points - Jeb Dunnuck, March 2018
"The tender texture masks serious density and a deep core of black cherry, red plum and mountain herb flavors. Well-integrated tannins and fresh but discreet acidity give this tensile strength. Focused, energetic and alluring."

The terroir in Priorat is close to crazy. You have to be a bit maniacal, not to mention dedicated, to plant vineyards on rocky steep slopes such as what are typical in Priorat - a winemaker's dream. The hills are steep with plenty of mineral in the soil, the days are hot, the nights are cool and more often than not there is a breeze coming off the Mediterranean. If you add some winemaking talent and stir, you will have some special wines.
Ferrer Bobet is a prestigious winery with a spectacular location, churning out critically beloved wines.
