Winemaker Notes

This is a new wine from Jorge Ordonez from the region of Montsant with soils just like it's neighbor, Priorat. Zerran Tinto is made from Syrah and very old Garnacha vines and Carignan (aka Mazuelo) aged 16 months in French oak. The red has very concentrated black fruit flavors and overtones of crushed stone.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Even better is the 2012 Zerran red, an outstanding bargain made from 60-year-old old vine Grenache and the rest Carignan and Syrah that spent ten months in two and three-year-old French oak. A beautiful nose of wet rocks, spring flowers, blueberries and black raspberries is followed by an elegant, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, supple tannins and a penetrating, savory richness. A major sleeper of the vintage, it boasts terrific minerality, especially for a wine in this price range.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Dense, earthy, inky aromas of raisin and schisty minerals are a good introduction to a well-packed palate that's pumping out wild berry flavors along with blackened toast accents. A medium-length finish brings this flavorful, stacked blend of Garnacha, Mazuelo (Carignan) and Syrah to a good close.

Bodegas Zerran, Montsant, Spain
Image of winery
This winery is a project of Jorge Ordonez and associates. The D.O. Montsant is a horse shoe shaped appellation that surrounds the DO Priorat on three sides. It should have been included in the Priorat appellation but was excluded when it was designated for economic reasons. The winery is located near the town of Capcanes next to a nature reserve park. Despite the proximity to the Mediterranean, this high elevation location (500-600m) is buffered by a series of mountains. The soils are similar to Priorat with Montsant being a bit more complex with a mixture of slate, sandy clay and chalk.

Surrounding the region of Priorat on all sides, Montsant shares much in common with its neighbor. Though its soils contain less schist than that of Priorat, its old Garnacha and Carinena vineyards produce wines of similar intensity and character.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
