Bula Montsant 2009
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Bula is a blend of 50% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, and 20% Syrah aged 4 months in French and American oak. It offers up a lightly roasted, liqueur-like bouquet of mineral, incense, game, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry. Rich and complex on the smooth-textured palate, this layered offering is an incredible value in full-flavored red wine. It will drink well over the next 8 years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is brambly, stalky and baked on the nose, and the palate is wide, tannic and scratchy. The flavor profile is all roasted plum, bacon and herb accents, finishing stalky and savory.
