External Reviews for Laurona Red Blend Montsant
Exuberant fresh apple flavors come up against the youthfully blunt talc of the lees. Together the fruit and lees leave a gingery impression that should develop more depth with another year in bottle.
The 2003 Laurona, composed of 60% Grenache and 40% Carignan, has a multifaceted nose of minerals, earth, soy, black currants, blueberry, and licorice. This full-bodied effort is mouth-filling, sweet from glycerin, and supple, with layers of flavor. This loaded wine should evolve for another 2-4 years and drink well for a decade.
Pretty raspberry and strawberry flavors gain depth from floral, mineral and herbal accents in this plush, well-structured red. Balanced and deceptively powerful. Garnacha, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2014.
Deep ruby. Sexy, floral scents of candied cherry, blackcurrant, licorice, mocha and vanilla bean. Broad and deep, with dense, concentrated dark berry flavors, subtle oak spices and succulent herb accents. The dark fruit flavors expand through the sappy finish, taking on musky, pungent earth, coffee and chocolate nuances. The tannins are lush and well-knit.
