Ardiles 2006

Member Review by ergodos:

Although it's to be expected on a Priorat, the body on this one wasn't enough to shine through the high alcohol. I could tell there was depth and substance down in there somewhere but it just wasn't coming out. Not terrible though, food provides good balance to the wine.

Flavors of ripe raspberries gain intensity from the tannins backing them with notes of dark chocolate, chestnuts and sweet spices. The structure is dense and broad, powered by amazing acidity that vibrates over those potent, elegant tannins. The 2005 Osmin is 42% Garnacha, 25% Carinena, with the balance Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot which was aged in new French oak for 12 months. It is purple in color with a superb bouquet of pain grille, slate, pencil lead, blueberry, and blackberry. Ripe, concentrated, and full-flavored, this is a relatively forward Priorat that will evolve for 2-3 years and drink well through 2020.
