Deep ruby colour, this interesting blend has a cedar, blackcurrant and plum nose; medium-bodied, and dry, it offers forward, spicy blackcurrant and cranberry flavours with a lively spine of acidity.
Deep ruby colour; vanilla oak predominating over jammy plum aromas with a cedary note; medium to full-bodied, dry, mouth-filling plum and cherry flavours. Finishes dry with a tannic lift on the finish.
Zerran Tinto is imported by and bottled for innovative Spanish importer Jorge Ordóñez, responsible for introducing many characterful and regional Spanish wines to the USA. This savoury Montsant is mostly very old-vine Garnacha and Mazuelo (aka Carignan) with a splash of Syrah. Big and concentrated, with dense black fruit, crushed stone, black flowers, kirsch, anise and cracked pepper covering a firm, muscular structure. Fantastic value for this Priorat neighbour.
Offers aromatic developed blackcurrant fruit, fine clove and cinnamon spice and fresh herbal notes. Integrated black fruit flavours are supported by solid structure with good balance, finishing very dry. A polished wine from a regional grape that deserves to be better known. Drinking well now but can age further.
Garnacha/Cariñena. The interesting bouquet reveals fine raspberry-like fruit with elegant spice and a subtle touch of oak. Both raspberry and blackberry come through on the palate, with notes of cinnamon and clove backed by fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity. Shows greater refinement than usually found at this price.
This interesting (and affordable!) sherry was made specifically for the Canadian marketplace. It is a delight with a nose of figs, roasted nuts, sweet spice, raisin, toffee and espresso notes. It’s medium-sweet on the palate, pleasantly so, with rich and earthy flavours of dried fruits, almonds, prunes and a range of sweet spices.
