This is a very nice Syrah from northeast Spain (the D.O. of Somontano). It is a unique take that is well worth exploring especially for the price. Deep garnet in color with a ruby rim, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries, some black raspberries, with slight dried floral notes and a hint of char/graphite. Medium bodied. 15%abv. On the palate, the black cherries dominate with underlying minerality. Very tasty. Medium tannins. Good acidity. Nice finish. If pressed, this has some similarities to a St. Joseph from the Northern Rhone. It is drinking well now and should continue for five to eight more years. A nice match for Cassoulet but even a (veggie) burger off the grill would work well too.
