Meritxell Palleja Nita Priorat 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Aromas of currants on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Tannic and somewhat bitter finish of sour plum and herbs
This wine is a little too tannic and bitter. Unfortunately, I don't think it will settle down much with cellaring. It's a blend of Grenache, Carinena, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah from the Priorat region of Spain. While Priorat produces some amazing wines, take a pass on this $24 bottle. Raise a glass of something else!
