Ètim Selection Syrah 2006

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish, cloudy rim.

Pretty nose of cherries, blueberries, wood, earth, spices, tobacco leaf, chocolates, metals, acetone, wet leaves, leather, forest floor, mushrooms and light black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, red currants, oak, stewed strawberries, earth, light vegetables, tobacco, dark coffee, licorice, spices, forest floor and black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This is a nice surprise. A very enjoyable 14 year old red wine from Spain. Drinking very nicely now with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Needs an hour to open up properly and show nice structure and tannins. Tasty and easy drinking.

Thank you David and Elvira for sharing.

Celler Vall Llach

Porrera de Vi de Vila de Vall Llach Carignan Blend 2010

Friday night and the start of another beautiful weekend. I have opened the 2010 VI De Vila Porrera De Vall Llach Priorat. A blend of 70% Carignan and 30% Garnacha.

On the nose there is black cherry, stewed plums, black raspberry, licorice, tar, tobacco, leather, baking spice, cured meat and forest floor.

On the palate there is black cherry, raspberry, baking spice, licorice, tar, tobacco, black olives and dry forest floor.

This wine is full bodied that is big and bold that these old vines provide some serious backing with medium + to high acidity and medium + to high gritty tannins that help provide a long chunky dark fruit finish. This is a beautifully complex wine to be enjoyed during the fall or winter with a hearty steak dinner. Let's all have a great weekend and please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Torres family has been related to wine since the 17th century. Aged in oak for 18 months (70% new). Dark Ruby with aromas of black and blue fruits and complex spice. On the palate this Spanish Cab shows blackberry, currant and ripe cherry flavors with eucalyptus, black pepper and herb spice, concentrated and complex with well integrated and structured tight yet smooth tannins. Long finish ending with vanilla, oak and earthy notes. Can enjoy not but will benefit from aging. — 5 days ago
