|Venus la Universal
This wine shows little if any oak, which only amplifies its elegance and class. Dried lavender on the nose, with blue fruits and a wisp of the forest floor. Notes of smoke and mineral intermix with orange blossoms and tart cherries. Medium-bodied with a sexy lushness that is backed up with structured tannins and an open, appealing freshness. The finish turns toward darker fruit, rich savor, and black pepper.
This little patch of ground is unique. It’s based on granite soil, and the vineyards comprise old vine Grenache, with some Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. So that makes it more in line with Priorat than Montsant.
