Xabec 2008

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Celler Besllumrsquo;s opaque purple-colored 2008 Xabec is a blend of 50% Carinena and 50% Garnacha aged in new French oak for 14 months. Aromas of pain grille, mineral, lavender, black cherry, black plum, and licorice inform the nose of this already complex, concentrated Montsant. Savory, ripe, and succulent, it has enough structure to evolve for 1ndash;2 years although this outstanding value can be approached now.

A supple texture carries pretty flavors of black cherry, anise, mountain herb and toast in this light, polished red. The tannins are well-integrated, and juicy acidity keeps this focused. Carignan and Garnacha. Drink now through 2014.
