Appearance: Deep purple red in color with lots of glass staining and a medium intensity.
Nose: Very aromatic nose on this one showing stewed fruits, dark cherry, some chalkiness, and a bit of cooking hamburger.
Palate: Red cherry, licorice, and a balanced amount of cedar all come through. Nice acidity and well balanced after aerating the wine.
Notes: 55% Samso (Carinena) & 45% Garnatxa (Grenacha). Prior to aerating the alcohol was a little overwhelming, but afterwards the wine opened up beautifully. So be sure to open and decant, or even open the day before if don’t want to decant it. Another year or 2 in the bottle wouldn’t hurt before opening this Montsant gem. Tasted 2/13/12
Price Range: $18-$22
