Falset-Marca 2006 Etim Seleccion (Spain)
Here's a wine with enough edge to make it interesting now but even more interesting in a few years. A Spanish blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah that just found its way into the Vintages section of the LCBO (in Ontario). The nose is plum, spice and black fruited, while the palate is plummy and spicy with a definite lean toward pepper. There's some bite back to this wine with tannins in and amongst all that peppery-spicinesss ... I say give it some time and you should see great results; or if you just can't wait, make sure to have a decanter handy.
