90

Penya’s 2015 Côtes Catalanes (52% Grenache, 36% Carignan and 12% Syrah) comes from tiny yields and was raised all in tank. It has a rich, sweet mid-palate, medium to full-bodied richness, no hard edges and terrific notes of blackberries, peppery/spicy herbs and leather. Drink this Old World fruit bomb over the coming couple of years.

Product Description:

"Tasting Notes: This medium-bodied blend is packed with flavor, offering aromas of plums & cherries with smoky notes. The palate yields red and black fruits, spices, a hint of bacon, and silky tannins.

"Serve With: Enjoy with a variety of everyday foods including pizza, pasta and burgers, as well as Mediterranean classics like ratatouille, cassoulet and stuffed tomatoes. It is also excellent with fish!" - Importer
