|Casa Gran del Siurana
Cherry red in colour. Intense and fresh floral aromas, with a mint touch. In the mouth it is fruity, round, complex. A fine structured wine, well balanced and elegant.
The 2010 GR-174 (tasted from a barrel sample), is made up of 35% Garnacha, 25% Carinena, and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.It saw 50% of the wine aged for 9 months in French oak (essentially the same composition and elevage for all of the GR series). It is a spicy, promising red with a smooth texture and plenty of savory red and black fruits at a very fair price. It will be drinkable upon release and provide enjoyment for another 4-5 years.
Score: 87-90. óJay Miller, May 2011.
