Spectacle Vins Montsant Espectacle 2008
WA98: 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.
