Clos Dels Codols Montsant 2002

Member Review by ryanopaz:

80% Garnacha 10% Carinena 10% Merlot Deep ruby purple quite dense. Raspbery nose that is intense with anise, smoke, and wood. Very rich and earthy. Firm but mature tannins and a strong acidity in the mouth. Overall a softer mouthfeel with rich raspberry fruit, light oak, some pepper, some barnyard like earthiness and a streak of mineral and earth. Mature and a wine that I would put with roast meats. Really a tasty little treat. 3.5/5 [NR]

Intriguing and classy label with stones scattered among the center. Quite stylish. Dark purple with a brownish tinge. Inky but not cloudy. Intensely strong aroma of grape juice, earth and charcoal smoke. Strange but appealing combination of smells. Dense and smooth mouthfeel with medium acidity. The flavor was exactly like the aroma for me. Intensely strong sweet grape juice, followed by equally strong mushrooms and dirt flavors. I enjoyed it but wasn't as impressed as I was on the second day. The following day seemed to relax the tannins, bring forth more earthy flavors while toning down the sweet fruit. Great balance and thoroughly enjoyable.

This onersquo;s nuanced and delicious, with aromas of blackberry and wet slate drifting languorously from the glass. An arresting combination of dark fruit flavors, exotic spices, and highly developed tannins and acidity. A good crossover to Spanish reds for fans of Bordeaux or more structured California cabs.

Deep purple colors prepare your palate for the black plum fruits and raisiny character of this wine. Try with hearty Italian fare or spicy beef dishes.
