Lori scored this wine: 93/100
Elegance in a bottle!
This is an old vine blend of Carignane (70%) and Grenache (30%) from Priorat, Spain.
The price may seem high but if you see what goes into making this gorgeous wine it makes it seem like a steal. Grown on steep vineyards the grapes are hand picked and then sorted berry by berry and then transferred by gravity to tanks for fermentation. Ferrer Bobet practices strict organic viticulture with no insecticides, fungicides and herbicides,
Colour is opaque . Aromas are complex; cherry, spice and vanilla and a vein of underlying chocolate. Well integrated tannins with balanced acidity. Gorgeous flavours of ripe sweet cherry and white pepper. A long finish of red fruit and oak.
I"m not sure I'd pair this wine with anything - it was delicious all on it's own!
