Bodegas Mas Alta La Basseta

2010 Bodegas Mas Alta La Basseta...$73.99
Personally, I would trade up to the splendid 2010 La Basseta which is sourced from 100-year-old vines and is a blend of 60% Garnacha, 20% Carinena and 20% Syrah aged for 16 months in French oak. It has a lifted nose of fennel, rosemary, raspberry leaf and crushed stone. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, rounded tannins, a touch of balsamic inflecting the red fruit profile with a floral, almost Cote Rotie-like finish derived from the Syrah. Drink 2016-2025.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
