Hisenda Miret Garnatxa 2006 by Pares Balta

2006 not yet rated.
90 Points - "An impressive effort reminiscent of a hypothetical blend of a high class southern Rhone and an elegant, complex Burgundian grand cru Cote d'Or, the medium to full bodied 2003 Hisenda Miret Garnatxa exhibits a deep ruby hue along with a pure, seductive aromatic display of flowers, black cherries, and a notion of wood. Its purity of fruit, background minerality, and overall balance are admirable. While it may not make 'old bones' it will offer beautiful drinking over the next 7-8 years." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Deep cherry red. Aromas of scrubland, broom, cocoa, crystallized fruit, fruit cake, licorice and lactic notes. A sweet, flavorful palate of medium structure, balsamic and typical of the variety, with sweet tannins. Very aromatic, with a long, suggestive finish.
