Ripe, dense cherry liqueur-like nose scented with some spices. On the palate, the wine is rich and plush with a fruity and spicy finish.
40% Mazuelo, 20% Syrah, 20% Grenache, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
"The 2009 Planella is a blend of 40% Mazuelo (Carinena), 20% Syrah, 20% Garnatxa, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 11 months in French and American oak. Deep purple in color, it exhibits an inviting nose of cedar, mineral, balsamic, lavender, leather, and assorted black fruits. Rich, layered, and succulent on the palate, it will evolve for 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2021.
