This wine is from Spain, Cataluna region, Conca De Barbera sub-region. Alluring and elegant, this is a modern-style wine with distinctive regional flavors. The smoky,chocolate notes from new oak frame intriguing notes of wild berry, mountain herbs and minerals.It's focused and still fresh. Drink now through 2009.
Intense deep red colour with a purplish sheen. Aroma of exotic and profound complexity showing the wine’s great density, incredibly rich body and structure. Note the hints of spices (pepper, clove), shrubs (thyme) and very ripe, small red berries (cranberry, redcurrant) over a background of smoke, vanilla and incense. On the palate the wine is a true revelation, a different style that at the same time evokes memories of other wines and other horizons. It grows as it warms up, exhibiting after a few seconds a fantastic series of flavours and memories... The dense but sweet tannins open up and once again deliver the spicy, fruity message of the bouquet and evolve in the aftertaste into a splendid finish that leaves a firm mark and a happy memory.
Perfect with meat dishes, such as the roasts or stews typical to Mediterranean cuisine, accompanied with tomato and pepper sauces or cooked with traditional herbs and spices (thyme, oregano, rosemary, basil, bay leaf, pepper).
