Xavier Clua, 2018 Terra Alta, El Solà d'en Pol, Tinto
40% Garnacha, 20% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Ull de Llebre, 10% Merlot
This young red from Xavier Clua Como in the Terra Alta is very impressive. It nose is bursting with fresh, dark black fruit including blackberries and plums. In the mouth it has zesty, bright acidity for good balance and is surprisingly rich and long. Ripe, firm tannins provide ample structure to stand up to highly spiced foods as well as long-cooked cool-weather hearty fare.
