Bodegas Pirineos Somontano DO 2010

Tasted 5/8/12, 13.5% ABV, cork closure. About £9 UK retail (various). A very interesting wine from one of the best producers in this somewhat obscure but resurgent northern Spanish region in the Pyrenean foothills. This is a blend of local Moristel grapes with Garnacha (Grenache) and Syrah. Mid ruby colour, great nose of berry fruits, coffee and a hint of pimento. The palate is very dry and a little tannic but good cherry fruit comes through on a long-ish finish. Coffee notes at the end. Good value, needs another year. Great food wine for a Mediterranean style lunch. From 2013, 15.5/20
