"Celler Vinos Pinol’s red wines begin with the 2010 Ludovicus, a blend of 40% Garnacha with the balance Carinena, Merlot, Syrah, and Tempranillo aged 3 months in French and American oak. It emits an inviting nose of spice box (cinnamon and clove), lavender, black cherry, and plum. In the glass it sports an easy-going, friendly personality leading to a fruit-laden finish with no hard edges. Drink this tasty blend over the next 3 years.

Celler Vinos Pinol is a 4th generation family-owned winery consisting of 100 acres in and around the village of Batea in Terra Alta, the southern-most DO in Catalunya." (WA)

"(40% garnacha, 20% syrah, 15% each of carinena and tempranillo, and 10% merlot): Bright purple. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoky minerals and white pepper, plus a suggestion of dried rose. Silky on entry, then firmer in the middle, with flavors of red and black fruits and floral pastille. The floral quality repeats on the lively, subtly powerful finish." (IWC)
