- Joseph Puig Montsant Red (Garnacha) 2012 Product #28371 (In Stock)
Joseph Puig's own winery, Vinedos de Ithaca, sits in nearby Priorat, so Montsant is a region he's known long and well. Here he's selected perfectly ripe Garnatxa Negra and allowed to age for three months in large (400 liter) French oak barrels for a touch of complexity and spice. The result is a wine with all the ripe, joyful, fruit of a fine Montsant - confit of red raspberry, strawberry, and black cherry - with accents of sweet spice and a touch of milk chocolate. While the flavors say "Monstant," the texture is much more smooth, soft and supple without any rustic, hard, edges. A fantastic cookout red for lamb or beef but with enough fruit and spice to sing with BBQ ribs, too!
