Cool Barbara

Back in the late 70's/early 80's..the only wines you got from Spain were gorgeous, cheap Riojas...
Because of the success..Spain then forgot about quality and streched their wines...into the 90's they were back on track..and nowadays the whole of Spain seems to be producing good to great wines.
Bàrbara Forés Negre, Terra Alta, Spain 2002
The thing I like most about the new Spanish wines..they they they are....
Perfect restaurant wines I would think...
This one is from the lighter 2002 vintage..Grenache, Syrah & Carignan are the grapes: spicy flavour, cool and elegant, with nice juicy fruits.
Points 15.5
