2016 D.O. Montsant "lo cirerer", Catalunya, Spain

Clear scent of ripe, partly preserved red and slightly dark berries with dried-herbaceous and slightly floral notes, as well as a little black olives and spicy notes. Ripe, tart and juicy, quite fresh fruit with herbaceous and slightly peppery and spicy aromas, delicate smoky, tart oak notes on the palate, earthy to mineral tones, again black olives, hint of bacon, peppery and spicy notes, a lot of strength and a certain warmth of alcohol, becomes even juicier with air, very good finish with tobacco notes.
