Montgarnatx 2004

This blend of 75% Garnacha and 25% Carignan is one of the most memorable expressions of the leading grape of Priorat and its granitic “llicorella” soil.

Tasting Notes

The wine shows deep color and has a spicy nose of cinnamon and licorice. Rich, ripe plums burst on the palate and carry through on the long finish, which also contributes a distinct mineral note.

Food Pairing

Pair this powerhouse red with aged beef, beef stews or pot roasts.
