- Billo Priorat Negre 2010 Product #28440 (In Stock)
Priorat tends to be a massive, intense, and cellar-worthy wine that needs time in cellar or big food to shine. So, the 2010 Billo Negre is a very special treat – a supple, open, blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and a little Cabernet Sauvignon that delivers plenty of classic Priorat character in a “drink me now” style. Generous aromas of black plums, blackberry, warm stones and a touch of savory herb waft from the glass. In the mouth the fruit turns more Grenache-like with raspberry and red plum joining the cassis and blue/black fruits and a touch of luscious milk chocolate coming up on the end. It’s full of flavor and nicely concentrated, but stays wonderfully fresh and pure on the dark berry, chocolate, and warm stone finish. The soft, fine-grained, tannins give this more than enough heft to pair with pork tenderloin or lamb loin chops, but it’s pretty darn tasty all by itself, too. A stellar value from rocky, dry, remote, Priorat.
