Cellers Unio Montsant Perlat 2016
Vivid ruby. Ripe, spice-accented dark berries, cherry-cola and a hint of woodsmoke on the nose. Smooth, sweet and round in the mouth, offering jammy black raspberry and cherry flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Supple, easygoing tannins frame the finish, which lingers with good persistence.
Earthy aromas of tobacco, modest oak and berry fruits require airing to put their best foot forward. A slightly sticky and resiny palate is as full as it needs to be, while this Garnacha-Carignan-Syrah blend tastes of ripe berry fruits and spicy oak. On the finish, clove and herbal notes enter the picture.
Black cherry and plum flavors mingle with forest floor and licorice notes in this round red. Light, firm tannins and balsamic acidity are balanced and give some depth. Sturdy. Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. Drink now through 2024. 7,100 cases made, 400 cases imported.
