From the bottle:
“H&G wines are hand-picked small lots of wine sourced from around the world. Like all good things though, these rare finds won’t last forever. Our limited release wines are only here while they last and then they’re gone, to be enjoyed by those who take advantage of the opportunity.
The Priorat region of Spain boasts a unique soil composition of Black Slate and Quartz partnered with a dramatic, continental climate. Bold in both structure and flavor, this region produces a wine rich in character with complexity and depth. In this limited release, aromatics of earth and concentrated red fruit open to flavors of jammy blackberry and robust spice. The perfect pairing for grilled hanger steak topped with a spicy chimichurri sauce.
The 2008 H&G Priorat Red begins with pleasant aromas of plum, blackberry, lots of spearmint and cedar. Tasting this medium to full-bodied wine reveals dark, juicy fruit, licorice and oak wrapped up in a delicious, lush texture. It ends dry with more dark fruit that turns into lingering dark chocolate and mineral notes. A great wine to pair with aged cheese.
