Espectacle del Montsant

Montsant Garnacha

A rare wine 98 RP wine from Clos Mogador we grabbed at the winery for €180 that’s needs a big decant to free the powerful yet elegant complexities that stir within 😍 still totally overpriced I think 🤔

📍 Clos Mogador Espectacle del Montsant 2007 (more pics of label ⏩ on Instagram)

🐮 Paired w/ slow cooked beef 🥩 & Mrs Es Mac cheese 🧀 👌 but was better w/ beef vs cheese 😉

🏵 96 points

🍇 100% Grenache from 120+ year old vines

🍷 Deep garnet ruby w/ brown edge

👃 Spiced peppery black cherry, smoke, earthy truffle & a touch of red berry fruits w/ a subtle gravel flinty minerality

👄 An elegant med body of intense ripe concentrated black cherry silkyness that’s not overpowering incredibly w/ earthy truffled red berry fruits & dry rich stoney rock minerals

🎯 Long earthy dark cherry, red berry & slight blackberry earthy touch dry stone mineral linger

Cuesta del Tejar Garnacha 2014

Nice Grenache but the pieces aren’t all fitting together at this point. Lots of red fruit on the nose but the tannins are a bit pokey even after a couple hours of air, and there is a touch of heat on the finish. Still enjoyable with some red meat. — 7 days ago

Classic Garnatxa 2001

Fantastic! I was afraid that this might be going downhill, but that’s absolutely not the case. Black cherry, barnyard, leather, brambles, prunes, gorgeous dark fruit. Serious stuff that went great with an Italian stew with mushrooms, Parmesan and gremolata. Enjoy this one, NOW. — 15 days ago

9.0

Well rounded. Tasty tannins start with fruity middle, rolling to tobacco/hint of chocolate finish. I enjoyed it on its own as well as paired with salmon. Not long finish, but left me wanting to sip more. — 8 days ago
