Priorat, Spain


Check out this rich and vibrant wine from the Catalonia region of Spain made by one of the area’s emerging superstars, Alfredo Arribas.  Alfredo is known for producing some of the most elegant wines in Priorat and Montsant.  Wines that are massive regarding flavor and complexity, but diminutive regarding alcohol levels and extraction. The opposite of the overripe, over wooded Priorats of old. This wine greets you with a nose of ripe plum; the body is full of black cherry notes with sweet tannins and a smooth lingering finish.  There is a great acidity that will help the wine mature in your cellar, or you can drink it now with some tasty BBQ, a hearty stew or some slow braised meats.  Enjoy!
