Dark purple color. Big nose of cassis, milk chocolate covered cherries and a bit of vanilla oak. More of the same on the palate with a ripe dark fruit, purple florals and milk chocolate flavor profile. Medium- acid and tannin. Smooth wine and the finish is enjoyable. A very tasty wine to sit and sip but a bit simple. I do not see this wine developing much more and the structure isn't there for the long haul.
Decanted two hours ahead. This is drinking very well now. Same layered complexity, with new note of spice. Once again, paired with lamb, this time butterflied leg, marinated & grilled. Raves from the crowd, most of whom preferred it to the Riu Priorat of same vintage.
