Mission Briefing

Codename:

Bailar Valenciana Take Two

The 2007 Pago de Montal Garnacha Tinto Barrica is a really approachable and enjoyable wine, smooth and fresh fruit on the nose and palate and an easy plush texture that lingers into the warm finish. The earthy quality and its soft herbal and spice notes makes this a wine that is great for a variety of foods and especially Spanish inspired tapas of chorizo, mushrooms, goat cheese and lots of garlic!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep and dense ruby red with a slight garnet tint through its clear darkish core. Along the edges, the color remains deep ruby and when swirled, this wine leaves evenly spaced medium thick legs along the side of the glass.

Smell:

Medium in intensity with ripe and rich cherry layered over earthy and herbal notes. A touch of meaty leather, spice and soft wood adds complexity and is slightly reminiscent of a Pinot.

Taste:

Plenty of plush red fruit including ripe cherry (and a slight hint of bitter cherry too) and hints of sweet strawberry and raspberry blend with earthy and herbal notes. Easy and approachable with added complex notes of leather and spice

Finish:

Clean and medium in length, this wine’s ripe fruit fades gently leaving hints of its earthy and herbal notes just a bit longer and inviting another sip (or gulp).
