Food Pairings for Oriel Red Rhone Blend Priorat Alma de Llicorella
A very vibrant wine with complexity throughout. Soft oak on the nose with a bouquet of blackberry, strawberry, cherry, subtle notes of honey and orange. The body is a little hot, but light and well-balanced with a good amount of tannin, notes of citrus, black pepper pomegranate and strawberry with cedar on the back of the palette. A long finish of cherry and notes of cocoa, smoke and vanilla.
