Anise, broken stone, wild blackberry lead this perfumed and wild Montsant. One of the great-value wine regions of the world, Montsant is a horseshoe around Priorat, sharing many of the same soils and all of the grapes. This is driven with the area's singular llicorella (slate) soils, buzzes with limestone and is grounded with the clay along a tightly mineral and textural palate, perfumed with violets, anise and light peppery spicing. Finishes warm, and yearning for lamb or wild boar. This is a blend of Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah that has spent 1 year maturing in French oak barrels.
