The 2011 Barrica (75% Monastrell and 25% Syrah) is the richest and densest. It offers up camphor, pepper, bouquet garni, roasted meat, black currant and earthy blue fruit. Full-bodied, chewy and mouth-filling, this is a big, well-balanced wine that represents a super value. Lurid ruby. Ripe black and blue fruits, cola, vanilla and potpourri on the deeply perfumed nose. Smooth and sweet on entry and then tighter in the midpalate, offering bitter cherry and blueberry flavors and hints of vanilla and spicecake. A smoky nuance emerges with aeration and carries through the long, gently tannic finish, which echoes the vanilla note.
