Acustic "Brao" Montsant Was 2006

Member Review by grapelab:

Is this what Chateauneuf-du-Pape would taste like if it were grown in limestone? More mineral, bright red fruits, less power and dry as the desert. Maybe, maybe not but this one's a bargain.

The 2006 Brao is a blend of 50% Garnacha and 50% Samso aged for 12 months in French oak, some of it new. Purple colored, it offers a similar aromatic profile but is more structured and fuller-bodied than the Acustic. Layered, bordering on opulent, the wine has superb depth, concentration, and a 40-second finish. Give it 3-4 years in the cellar and drink it through 2026.
