Celler Piñol Red Blend Terra Alta Ludovicus 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes in this wine are Garnacha (35%), Tempranillo (30%), Syrah (25%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) all perceptible on the nose, which is vibrant, open, and full of ripe black and red fruits, earth, tar, tobacco, and vanilla. The palate is wide open and forward. It's upfront ripe black berry fruit is immediate on the palate and is followed by spicy vanilla notes before finishing with a mixture of fruit, earth, black pepper, and tobacco. It's all held together with ripe, low to medium tannins and low to medium acidity. By itself, it is interesting and borderline contemplative, with food, its upfront ripe fruit and structure has enough to match with burgers, mac and cheese, leaner meats, such as roast turkey and chicken, turkey or tofu burgers, red meat fish (ie., salmon, tuna), and grilled vegetables. A real bargain bottle for Thanksgiving dinner or any barbecue, for that matter.
