Vinya l'Hereu Red Blend Costers del Segre Petit Grealo 2004

Member Review by abryksa:

The color is an opulent, almost black purple and this wine is so dense and thick, it cannot be seen through even when placed against a light. The nose is gorgeous with aspects of spiced vegetable juice (V8) and minerality like Flintstones vitamins (I loved those as a kid) and licorice and the taste is jammy and herbal with no maskings of oak and has lots of rich, full tannins pushing it through a great finish. It can be enjoyed now or laid down for some time in the cellar, due to those strong tannins. As far as food goes, I wouldn’t even bother, it is that good on its own.

finding a bottle in Sept 2012, we wondered what this wine would do. very dark purple colour. with no decanting, the initial taste prevails with a sharp, overwhelming metal-earth taste. however, after decanting 30+ minutes, ther flavour evolved into a wonderfully velvety wine with hints of spiced plum. If you find any bottles kicking around after its ideal 2008 date, don't despair, still very drinkable.
