01 Celler Ardevol, Priorat Terra d'Hom

The robust, pruney, nearly figgy aroma hits with the power of a fortified wine and really captures the essence of the sun-baked, heat-retaining soil of Priorat. Though spicy up front, the fruit flavors are supple of blueberries, minty oak, black pepper, dark chocolate, and roasted fennel. The finish is aggressive--slightly smoky with more plums, refreshing citrus, and fine food-friendly tannins on the front of the teeth.
