Laurona, Montsant – The Spanish Craze Continues

By now you might have seen the Wine Advocate’s reviews on Spanish wines that were released a few days ago. Huge scores were given: Termanthia received 100 pts, Numanthia received 98 pts, and Clio received 97 pts – to name just a few. We hope you had an opportunity to buy some Clio and Numanthia off our November 2006 Merchant’s Pick (View Here), because unfortunately the wines are sold out.

Not to worry, there are still some fantastic wines that can be snatched up. One wine that is absolutely tasty that seems to have flown under the radar is the 2003 Laurona from Montsant. This Spanish red was on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List for 2006 and also received 92 points from Robert Parker, 91 points from The Wine Spectator and 90 points from Stephen Tanzer.

Taste, not ratings, drive our recommendations and this wine is every bit a champ and more. If you like full bodied wines like Clio and Numanthia – but would like a touch more elegance – this wine is sure to please. If offers sexy, floral scents of candied cherry, black currant, licorice, mocha and vanilla bean. Broad and deep, with dense, concentrated dark berry flavors, the wine reveals subtle oak spices and succulent herb accents. The dark fruit flavors expand through the sappy end, taking on musky, pungent earth, coffee and chocolate nuances. The tannins are lush and well-knit.

Delight in with grilled meats and other hearty meals. This wine can be loved now and has the structure to be set down for 8-10 years if you choose. Cheers!
