Bluegray Priorat (Spain) 2012 Red Wine

Bluegray Priorat (Spain) 2012 Red Wine, $15.29-$17.99, 92 points, poured black except toward the glass bowl and transparent wine ring.
Fragrant perfumed aromas were profusely floral and fruity with earth tones.
The full body was early palate silky while bright acidity and grainy firm tannins began to strengthen and dominate the aroma reflective flavors with hints of pomegranate.
Finished well on hints of coffee, black licorice, black currant, tobacco, an intense spearmint, and a potent 15% alcohol.
Varietals were 45% Garnacha, 30% Mazuelo, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Paired perfectly with my stir-fried vegetable with beef.

  1. There was a small neighbourhood-winery, here in Coombsville, Daviana, that used to make a Priorat-style wine (which was rather pleasant), but I think they have gone out of business.

    1. I'm always sad to hear such things.
      Priorat has always been my favorite red wines of Spain, and for the price of this one you can't go wrong (even if it were an 88 point wine).
