CIMS Del Montsant 2010 Red Wine, $12,74-$14.99, 87 points, was opaque ruby at the core trending a brighter crushed blackberry purple/red toward the broad clear circumferential rim.
Aromatic with spiced red cherry with gardenia on the nose.
Medium bodied with bright acidity and moderate-plus, but persistent tannin carried rich plum and mulberry flavors which paled in comparison to its perfume notes (not uncommon with Garnacha). Varietals are 63% Garnatxa ( Garnacha) and 37% Carinyena (Carignan).
Finished long on the trailing palate with coffee, spice, and alcohol (13.5%) notes.
