Winemaker's Notes

"The 2004 Costers del Gravet is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Garnacha, and 15% Carinena. The Garnacha and Carinena vines range in age from 30-60 years while the Cabernet is 15-20 years. The wine was aged for 12 months in used French oak. Purple colored and more touched by the oak, the wine exhibits an attractive perfume of pain grille, minerals, scorched earth, spice box, black currant, and black cherry. This is followed by a layered, full-bodied wine with gobs of sweet black fruits, a plush texture, and a pure, lengthy finish. Drink this hedonistically-styled wine now and over the next 8-10 years."

I really liked this wine. I usually go for varietals because I have not had the greatest experience with blends. This was really nice and having paid around $15, I think I'm gonna get this one again. There was a real good balance to this wine, I expect that from a blend, but it also had a decent amount of character to it.
