From the Cellar

Etim 2006 Seleccion (Spain)

15 May 2020

Etim

(March 29, 2020) ... From the region of Montsant, Spain - this Grenache, Carignan, Syrah blend is aged for 6 months in oak (all taken from the back label of course) ... So 14 years from vintage date and there is an expected forest floor note with smokey and peppery bits ... as it opened earthy, cassis, dried cherry and freeze-dried raspberry also develop in the glass ... as it opened further there seems to be a touch of VA that drifts in and out, then becomes more prominent ... as the wine winds down (ie: begins to die in the glass) it gives off one last gasp of coffee on the finish ... it did last an hour an a half or so, no real complaints here.
