I was blown away by the IGP Côtes Catalanes Secret de Schistes, and it’s unquestionably my favorite vintage of this cuvee to date (I’ve compared this wine to a Syrah from Manfred Krankl’s SQN in the past). Notions of crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, roasted herbs and crushed rock nuances give way to a full-bodied, gorgeously textured red that has terrific concentration and a great, great finish. Like all the cuvees here, it’s 100% Syrah that was fermented and aged all in barrel. Count me as a fan. (JebDunnuck.com)
Saturated black in color, the 2015 IGP Côtes Catalanes Secret de Schistes is reminiscent of Manfred Krankl’s SQN Syrahs with its deep, unctuous, layered profile. Cassis, chocolate, licorice, smoked herbs and ample minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy beauty that just begs to be drunk. Possessing ripe tannin, a stacked mid-palate and a great finish, it will be better in a year or two and keep for a decade. (JD)
