Llicorella Classic Priorat 2007
|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
Intense up front, with potent black fruit aromas offset by a lactic creaminess. Racy and juicy in the mouth as bright, penetrating blackberry flavors hit hard and then are softened by flavors of chocolate and mocha. Feels a little acidic and strained, but should age nicely for up to five years.
Black cherry, licorice and smoke flavors are focused and expressive in this light, firm red. Balsamic acidity keeps this lively and imparts an exotic edge. Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. Drink now through 2014. 5,000 cases made.
