Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2008 Laurel is purple in color with a nose of exotic spices that jumps from the glass. Included in the array are notes of mineral, tapenade, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense on the palate with a deft combination of power and elegance, this is a remarkably fresh effort due to the acidity level common in the 2008 vintage. Give it 2-3 years in bottle and drink it from 2013 to 2023. (May 2011)

Clos Erasmus's second wine is made with the same vinification process as that of the Clos Erasmus Priorat. Shortly before bottling, however, Daphne declassifies a few barrels that would otherwise have been headed for the Priorat. This wine is mixed with wine from younger vine plantings and is bottled as Laurel. Still quite rare, and an exceptional value!
