Barranc dels Closos by Mas Igneus, 2011, Priorat, Spain

12 Jan

09A classic Priorat blend of 80% Garnatxa Negra (Grenache) and 20% Carinyena (Carignan). The nose expounds aromas of licorice and sweet red berries. The palate is lush in style, medium-bodied with juicy acidity. Bold wine with a deep mineral streak underlining the fruit, this would do nicely next to spicy-sweet glazed ham. $25
