We continue the Spanish wine taste journey with a wine from the comet area Priorat, neighbor to Montsant . Priorat has got a fantastic boost is obvious with a great combination of the unique soil called Licorella, but not the least impact from the area's innovative winemakers who have combined wine culture with ultra modern ideas.

The wine is made from about 60% Garnacha and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The color is dark red as the finest bull's blood.
What a great wine love I found. Delightfully filled up with notes of cherry, rosemary, fresh herbs, vanilla and perfect tannins. A wonderful wine full of youthful power like the handsome Spanish young bull. Will be amazing with a few years of aging, on the other hand great to drink already today. An outrageously good wine that is more than well worth the wait for. Because if you only have patience, you will be richly rewarded within 2-4 years, the wine has just begun to open up like a true quality wine will do. Perfect for the most dishes with red meat.
