The story: Priorat, one of only two DOCa's in Spain, is known for its big, bold reds. A tiny region deep in the mountains of northeast Spain, its black slate soils impart a depth to the wines that's like nothing else. Thus, it was an obvious choice to name this wine "menut," which translates to "small."
In your mouth: My bright fruit aromas jump out of the glass, buoyed by licorice and hints of cedar. I dance on your palate with notes of blueberry and raspberry as my distinctive rocky minerality conducts. A burst of spice joins in as I finish, reluctantly leaving your palate.
