Coster de l’Ermita 2015
Dark garnet colour with lilac and burgundy shades. In the nose initially, we find young wood, which as it is aerated are transformed into more complex aromas, licorice, spices. Then it gives way to very ripe fruit, red fruit compote and plum. Very wide aromatic range of tertiary. Pleasant entry, but with character. Expresses the minerality of the terroir via the retro-nasal route with hints of damp earth and undergrowth. Friendly tannin, which is expressed in its perfect balance with the fruit. The maximum expression of the variety in Priorat.
