Besllum Monstant 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Besllum has a deep dark color with aromas of blackberry, blueberry, exotic spices, lavender, mineral, and pain grille. Concentrated with a full body and flavors reminiscent of sweet fruit. There is just enough acidity to carry the flavor through the long, supple finish. Composition: Carinena 45%, Garnacha 45%, Syrah 10%

Region: Spain » Catalunya

Never had anything by this producer and to be honest I should have waited - but thank the Lord that I have a good aerator and a wide body decanter...this needed both. Inky purple with a clear ring. Lush, heavy nose of violets, blackberry, currant, vanilla, smokey oak (nuanced) with dark cherry. The palate - this is a powerful, teeth & tongue coating wine. Intense fruit and tannins with the spice and pepper notes really building on the full tannic profile. Good acidity leaves a heady reminder for awhile. I'd hold this for 1-2 yrs and then drink with lamb or goat. Amazing stuff for $12 a bottle - reminds me of the old big zins and petit sirahs. Paul 91 points
