2006 Agrícola Falset-Marça Montsant Etim Old Vines Grenache

Post  Zachary L A N G on Thu Jan 22, 2009 5:08 pm

I've had this three times previously and never was it as good as last night. I decanted this bottle for about an hour and then drank over the next two. The color was a clear deep garnet. This showed hints of minerality, dark dark cherry and some plum. It had very masculine tannins, but with the time I let this breath, they weren't too bold. This wine has great aging potential, but with enough time in the decanter, don't be afraid to pop a few early. This is a screaming value at $11. (if I was one to assigned numbers, for me, I'd say this is 88-89 / 100). (If you care, jay Miller gave this 91 pts)

Thanks for the note. Although I don't know Zach, at $11 per I don't know if I could bring myself to open one now if they are only gonna get better down the road.
