Agrícola Falset-Marça Grenache Blend Tarragona Ètim Selection Grenache 2004

Member Review by enotheque:

I was very happy with this one, despite purchasing it at one of the Soviet Republic of Pennsylvania's State Controlled stores. Leaving that point aside, though, this wine is further proof that Monsant D.O. is another great value exchange-rate killer. Yes, the cost of EU wines are hurting pockets, though appellations like these make the burden barely perceptible. Maybe it wasn't quite the greatest Monsant I've tried, but it was still worthwhile. Loved the intense red fruit concentration and pepper spice, along with the structure and black fruit from the younger Cabernet. Was a great companion to my patatas bravas.

We have reinforced vinification machinery in an important manner: grape reception, cool and heat fermentation controls, self-emptyng vats, oak barrel selection from the best coopers, temperature control of the barrel room and the bottle room... The application of this technology means the achievement of best grapes quality respecting their native features which gives us the final product. Since the cellar foundation (1919) we preserve the formula to elaborate an aperitif wine (vermouth) aged into centenarian oak barrels. Also we have available our traditional fortified wines of dessert (swet liqueur wines) elaborated with ancestral native techniques and our old and dry wine (ranci) produced outdoors at cellar's terrace and aged through a nearly centenary "solera".

2003 vintage. Perhaps past its best but still showed quite well. Very herbaceous - elements of green leaf and tea showing through. Lacked any long finish but an interesting wine nonetheless.
