flavorful effort should drink well through 2020. The 2005 Clos Figueres, a blend
of Garnacha, Carinena, Syrah, and Mourvedre, is opaque purple-colored. It
delivers a complex and expressive perfume of smoky oak, pencil lead, mineral,
spice box, black cherry, blueberry, and black raspberry. This leads to a dense,
opulent wine that still manages to retain some elegance. Ripe and sweet, this
hedonistic effort should evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2025. Clos
Figueres was purchased in 1997 by importer Christopher Cannan on the advice of
Rene Barbier. The older Carignan and Grenache vines, planted for the original
Clos Figueres estate, are used for the Clos Figueres bottling while the newer
vineyards planted in 1998 are used for Font de la Figuera. Rene Barbier's team
handles the viticulture and winemaking.''
