The 2010 Castell del Remei Sicoris Costers del Segre begins with a fabulously complex aroma of black and red fruit, savory herbs, a little smoked meat, cedar, sweet spice, vanilla and mint. Tasting the wine reveals an excellent dry, smooth and lush texture, good acidity, a ton of rich and sweet dark fruit, savory herbs and fantastic spice and licorice all the way through the finish. It ends dry and grippy with good length. An awesome blend that mixes traditional Spanish varieties like Grenache and Tempranillo with Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah -- five of my favorite things!
