Petalos Descendientes de Palacios Bierzo 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator SMART BUY: "Expressive black cherry, currant, licorice, mineral and smoke flavors mingle in this focused red. The texture is gentle but firm, with well-integrated tannins and racy acidity providing structure. A compact wine that shows good intensity. Drink now through 2023...91" Thomas Matthews, WS 92 Points, Zachys Buying Team: "It is one of the most expressive and perfumed wines under $20. The floral notes of violets, lavender and lilies accompanied by a chalky-smoky minerality scream out of the glass. What we like about the 2013 is that it is more vibrant and energetic than the riper, fuller 2012 release. All these aromatic notes echo on the palate with tongue staining floral notes interweaving with wild blackberries, black currants, and plums that slowly evolve into an herbaceous and spicy finish. Grilled, charred meat with rosemary, shoshito peppers are a nice complement to the dark fruit, spice and ash.”
