Vinya Carles, Crianza, Priorat, Catalonia, Spain, 2014
(at Compagnie de Vins Surnaturels, 01 Mar 2018)
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2020
This intense red from the small, hilly appellation of Priorat is a great buy. Aromas of crushed red berries, iron and a waft of vanilla set the scene for the intense red fruit palate. Fragrant strawberry leads into oaky notes of creamy vanilla, chocolate and sweet cinnamon, balanced by good acidity and some tannic grip. Drink with roast lamb, or take it to a barbecue this summer.
