Great Value 5 glasses
Great perfume, with wonderful fruit and stoniness underneath. Great acidity, too. Honey, apples, melon. Wonderful food wine.
Mourvedre, Grenache. Mineral and raspberry aromas to this dark wine. Frais de bois and raspberry flavors. Very nice, rich mouthfeel and a concentration of flavors in the midpalate. Chalky, stony finish.
Very attractive dark crimson color. Aromas of dark red fruit, coffee, spice, and earth. Coffee and tobacco were present on the palate, but there was also the taste of red cherry, blackberry, red pepper, and vanilla. The wine is full and smooth in the mouth. The finish is long and satisfying.
For the price I paid (5Euro) this was a decent purchase. Obviously not as complex as other Priorats, but with nine months in barrel this wine has some quality. Decent structure, nice earthiness and some dried fruit components.
Amazing nose on this wine. Big and floral with hints of ripe tropical fruit. Fairly round and rich on the palate. Very interesting wine.
As seen in the <a href="http://www.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/dining/bs-fo-wine-find-1027-20101027,0,6805286.story">Baltimore Sun</a>: "Serve with: Grilled steak, lamb This lush, ripe Spanish red from the venerable Torres firm — now spreading its wings in Rioja after decades in Penedes — shows intense flavors and admirable depth. It offers well-defined flavors of black cherry, herbs, spices, smoked meat and vanilla. It's quite enjoyable now, but could age well for several years."
External Reviews for Josep Foraster Crianza Bodegas Mas Foraster Tarragona/España
Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Mixing blackberry fruit tones with light sniffs of old leather and the tightness of youth, this wine still gets it spot on in its aromas and delivers well in the mouth. It is supple to start in palatefeel, then progress to a firm, tannin-supported spine that demands a fair bit of patience in order for the wine to come out of its rough stance. With depth to spare and focus that is true-to-type, this Zin can be put away with confidence.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
Classic example of cool-climate Syrah from the northern Rhône. It shows fat smoky tar and game over huckleberry and black currant fruit; has great acidity and staying power so give it lots of air.
This is a blend of four estate grown grape varieties: Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache and a dash of Counoise. It's well-structured and very generous on the palate with dark berried fruit, raspberries and spice. Organic.
