Raul Perez Ultreia Saint Jacques, Bierzo, Spain 2016
"Youthful purple color. Sexy, mineral- and smoke-accented dark berry, incense and pot-pourri scents are complemented by suggestions of star anise and smoky minerals. Sweet, seamless and concentrated, offering lively boysenberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors that become deeper and spicier with aeration. Sappy, palate-staining and energetic in style, with subtle tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's lingering blue fruit."
