2005 Sumoll Rosat, Pardas, Catalunya

  • 2005 Sumoll Rosat, Pardas – Spain, Catalunya (9/1/2006)
    100% Sumoll – 13% alcohol
    Deep reddish color though very light at the rim. The nose is very restrained with a mineral and cherry pit aroma that hits you after some agitation in the glass. This slowly gives way to some light vanilla, raspberry and more wet stones like aromas. In the mouth this wine is fully dry and very fresh on the palate. Flavors are primarily of cherry with a restrained quality about it. Juice like with a floral/herbal quality towards the back of the mouth. Minerals is what I think of but in a stone fruit sort of framework. A light hint of spice weaves it’s way in and out as you sip on it. Really a intriguing wine with a ethereal quality to it. YUM!
