Buil & Gine Barboix Montsant 2006

This Catalan red blend of five different grapes is a big wine, with subtle raspberry and cherry flavors and a smoky/coffee/licorice finish. Aged in oak barrels for a year, and then in the bottle, it needs at least an hour to breathe, preferably two, but then rewards you with a superior, intense experience. A great bargain at $10.99.
