Costers del Siurana Miserere Priorat 1994 Wine Review (NW)

Nose of cherry, butterscotch, and white chocolate
Smooth palate
Dry, smooth finish, with some floral and fruity notes

I expected a dry, smooth wine, but this was very dry and very smooth. It revealed its layers slowly and emerged with a nice bouquet given some time. The wine was nice and the food paring was amazing. We had Spanish steaks with chimichurri sauce, which provided a good enough excuse to extract this bottle from the cellar and give it some air. I paid $29 for the wine last year at a shop with an excellent Spanish selection and a number of Priorats. Raise a glass!
