2011 Bodegas Monasterio de Corias - Vino de la Tierra de Cangas "Seis Octavos" Joven Seleccion
"One of my new favorites, this beautiful, medium-bodied red that has elements of character that remind me of St.-Joseph (Syrah) meets Nuits-St.-Georges (Pinot Noir) with dark violets, earth and spices with a core of cherry and plum fruits. The floral and loamy nose leads the way to a vivid palate of the dark fruit, peppery spices, sweet herbs, anise and lavender plus a touch of mineral and stone. Everything is nicely framed by soft tannins and juicy acidity in this delicious red from Spain’s Northwest. The grapes grow inside the walled Monastery de Corais in Cangas, where the exposure helps get red grapes Albarin Negro and Carraquin (sometimes a touch of Mencia make it into the blend) ripe in this cool climate area. Only a tiny amount of this wine gets made, and considering the conditions and rarity, it is also a steal! That's why I drink this stuff, it is an exotic old world gem." -Kerry Winslow, SFWTC
