Jaspi Negre 2011 – Montsant, Spain

Cherries and blackberries on the nose with a hit of mustiness and fresh flowers.  This is a powerful beauty, true to its name of Black Jasper.  She starts with luscious red fruits, moving to dried prunes, raisins, and leather.  It develops a further mustiness as it sits on the mid-palate, chewy and reminiscent of autumn leaves decaying.  As the tannins show up late to end the party, you’re left with a faint history of tart strawberries.  Just a gorgeous wine.
