Lafou De Batea 2013

LaFou is a small producer in the Terra Alta region of Spain, one I was lucky to visit on a recent trip to the Catalan. An expressive, fruit-driven blend of old vine Garnacha Negra and Garnacha Carignan—it’s heavily laden in pie cherries, strawberries roasted in balsamic, olive tapenade, and warm spice. Intense and concentrated in the mouth, here red fruit is lifted by a jolt of bright acidity at the center, a vortex that dwindles to complex flavors of sweet tobacco, Yankee Candle and Christmas Pudding.
