Review
Bula Montsant is made by blending40% Mazuelo, 40% Grenache and 20% Syrah. These three varieties are very well acclimated to the historical region that today covers the DO of Monsant. The soil is clay and sandy slate ideal for the cultivation of the previously mentioned varietals blended in this wine. Aromas of roasted coffee, casis liqueur, and mineral open up and intense and attractive nose. Full-bodied with a silky mouth-feel and good concentration and weight. The flavors are lasting and very satisfying. The finish is long with notes of dark fruit and minerals.

Rating
2009: 91 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Bula is a blend of 50% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, and 20% Syrah aged 4 months in French and American oak. It offers up a lightly roasted, liqueur-like bouquet of mineral, incense, game, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry. Rich and complex on the smooth-textured palate, this layered offering is an incredible value in full-flavored red wine. It will drink well over the next 8 years. "

2009: 90 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Vivid ruby. Fresh red berries and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of dried flowers, minerals and licorice. Juicy, fresh red berry and bitter cherry flavors are framed by silky tannins and lifted by zesty minerality. The floral and mineral notes resonate on the long, gently sweet, vibrant finish. There are plenty of pricey Priorats that can't match this wine's intensity and complexity."
