Very nice GSM, with a distinct personality. Catalunya is more than Penedes and Priorat.
Though still young, this Garnacha-Syrah-Garrut (Mourvèdre) blend from Conca De Barberà, close to Priorat and Montsant, is a full, rich, well-balanced red that tastes just like a GSM blend from Spain should. Soft yet structured, fresh yet profound, it features a complex array of notes including plum, blackcurrant, prune, fig, dried raspberry and other berries (suggesting Rioja), black pepper, earth, roasted and cured meat, and leather (suggesting maturity beyond its youth). It's not clear if it this has much aging potential, but it works very well right now, rewarding contemplative tasting.
Very nice for a ten dollar wine, except it costs twice as much. In fact, I just had a ten dollar wine that was just as good. So put this back on the shelf, head over to the general section (also Spanish), and pick up Beso de Vino, in either the red or the blue bottle.
