It is really fascinating for me to be able to talk about a wine that brings with it so many sensations. It is a liquid symphony which speaks of the total dedication of an entire family, enabling them to produce a unique wine capable of touching our emotions and leaving an eternal souvenir in our minds. For me, CM14 is a landscape encapsulated in a bottle. With each sip, we are transported to the sloping terraces which are so typical of the Priorat area where the Mediterranean climate unites with the land to give us a wine that expresses itself with force and conviction. Very few wines in the world acquire a soul! This soul cannot touch physically but can make itself felt. This intangible part is that which touches our hearts. This family has been able to make its mark on us with their burning passion in the form of each bottle produced which transforms the wines therein into something exceptional. This is a perfect blend of the native grapes (the dominant Garnacha and Cariñena) and the foreign grapes (Syrah and Cabernet-Sauvignon) all of which live happily in the soil of this land. Here we find red and black fruits as expected, layered with toasted, spicy aromas which give a thought provoking nose. The palate shows us how well the wine will develop during the ageing process which, in its turn, will bring maturity and charisma. This type of charisma is only found in a great wine. This is a wine where the sun and the land express themselves and this family hears and understands them. This allows them to show the world the magnificence of their region which contributes to the liquid heaven which is CM14. We consider ourselves privileged to have had the pleasure of tasting such a wine. Let's raise our glasses to your very good health.

Wine SpectatorLively and expressive, this red delivers ripe cherry and boysenberry flavors, backed by mountain herb, licorice and mineral notes. The rich texture is balanced by lively acidity and fine-grained tannins. There's plenty of stuffing, but the wine remains graceful and fresh. Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2026. 2,100 cases made.
