2007 Acústic "Acústic" Montsant (Previously $20)

SKU #1050168

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Acústic is a blend of 55% Samso (Carinena) and 45% Garnacha aged for 10 to 11 months in seasoned French oak. Purple-colored, it offers up an alluring perfume of smoke, mineral, underbrush, blueberry, and black cherry. This is followed by a full-bodied wine with tons of blue and black fruit, spice and mineral notes, and enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. It should be at its best from 2010 to 2018. It is an excellent introduction to the style of the region." (02/09) Back and every bit as tasty as the prior vintage, this staff favorite shows beautiful, black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with extraordinary freshness, purity and lift on the palate. Winemaker, proprietor and NBA nut Albert Jane is making some of Montsant's best wines, and luckily for alll of us continues to charge a very reasonable amount for his efforts. We cannot recommend this beautiful wine highly enough.

One of my favorite wines in the store to currently consume is the exceptionally made production from Montsant of Acustic 2007 "Acustic." This deeply colored, almost inky in appearance Gem is a blend of samso (55%), which is the Penedes term for carignan or carinena, with the balance being garnacha (grenache), that results in an incredibly lush, flashy wine on the nose, showing tons of blueberry to plumy to cassis-like fruit elements, supported by cedary oak and spicy mineral undertones. All of these components carry over into its ever-expansive, complex mouthfeel, treating you to an amazingly deep, broad wine, yet with balance and integrated, silky tannins. The finish seems go on forever. This wonderful drinker will age easily another 3 to 6 years, but Anderson has informed me that this Gem will be one of our house reds for the month. We will have no choice but to drink it. Enjoy!(Jim Barr)
Drink from 2010 to 2015
