|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
Striking flavors of cranberry and pomegranate are accented by mineral, earth and chocolate flavors in this intense, chewy red. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, and the acidity is lively. A bit edgy but distinctive. Drink now through 2012.
Dark in color, with licorice, kirsch, mineral and prune aromas. This registers as a ripe wine with a soft frame. It's not flabby but it does seem a bit oily and rich, with black cherry and baked plum flavors. Finishes a touch short, but also a little thick. Drink now through 2010.
