The 2008 Espectacle del Montsant continues a string of great successes dating from the first vintage in 2004. The sheer level of density and richness is stunning although the fruit is very primary at this stage of its development. Aromas and flavors of exotic spices incense licorice truffle black cherry and blackberry lead to a full-bodied wine that deftly combines elegance and power. Sweetly fruited savory and precisely balanced this voluminous effort will profit from 4-5 years of cellaring and be at its best from 2015 to 2028.

An explosively perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry cherry-cola sandalwood and Asian spices plus a smoky overtone. Intense mineral-accented red and dark berry flavors stain the palate showing sexy floral pastille and spicecake elements. Sweet and deep in flavor but impressively lithe finishing with strong thrust and noteworthy clarity. -JR
