Melis Grenache Blend Priorat 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Coffee, cola and earth flavors run though this burly red. There's a core of plum fruit, and enough acidity to keep it lively. Muscular but well-integrated, with lots of oak. Grenache, Carignane, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2008. Wine Tasting Notes The Melis shows a deep purple black color, with beautiful aromas of black cherry, tobacco and violets, as well as unique mineral notes derived from the licorella slate of our vineyards. The palate is full and rich, with a silky texture balanced by fine tannins and a long finish. We recommend decanting this wine 30 to 60 minutes prior to drinking.

PnPed. Quite fruity (not California PN fruity) with red plum, strawberry flavors with some vanilla oak. Very little acid, and even though I am an acid bigot, this is not translated into a minus. A medium-bodied wine whose tannins appear to have settled nicely. A very enjoyable wine.

Ruby purple at the core with slight garnet hues to the rim. With excellent freshness, the nose exhibits aromas of sage brush, violets, and acacia flowers, which are complemented by strawberries, dried cranberries, mocha and freshly ground black pepp...
