Wine of the Week
Aspriu Negre 2011 [Red]
A Mediterranean red made for Cabernet (Franc & Sauvignon), aged in French oak from the Penedès region in Northeastern Spain. Excellent wine, showing well, should keep well for quite a few years.
Dark cherry red color, dark berry fruit aromas (cassis/blackberry) with the elegant, spicy scent of quality French oak. Full-bodied, yet elegant and silky smooth with a nice long finish. A keeper.
A note to our readers:
I've used SRP, which is the normal price in Spain expressed in US dollars [Low=$5-7, Medium=$8-14, High=$15+].The wines selected are moderately priced and generally exported around the world
