Are you ready for some vino! This wine, the clear winner in our monthly search for "Wine of the Month" honors, drinks way over its price point and will brighten and balance your October. Whether you're tailgating, firing up the barbecue or relaxing in the hot tub after a Fall weekend away, this Potente is a top quality wine at an amazing price.

The nose is lovely, dark and deep, with scents of spicy red berries, raspberries, cherries and strawberries, with a touch of plum, leading to rich notes of incense, garrique, lavender and white pepper. The palate reiterates the ripe fruit in the nose, with mixed red berries in the fore, and a touch of fresh plum, surrounded by ample acidity and rounded tannins. The ripe fruits are equalled by the impeccable structure as each elevates each. Notes of black cherry, crushed rocks and cacao make for a beautiful finish.

Hand-harvested from the Capçanes highest mountain vineyards (100 miles southwest of Barcelona), this blend of 65% Garnacha, 15% Merlot, 10% Cariñena and 10% Syrah from D.O. Montsant in northeastern Spain, is beautifully balanced and ideal for the heartier fare and chillier weather we're facing as Fall slowly builds. This blend has enough forward fruit and innate structural equanimity to easily handle said cooler weather or the last memories of late summer we may face this month and next.

Pair with: Chili con carne, barbecued beef with dry marinade, duck salad with strawberries, filet mignon with peppercorn sauce, mixed grill of beef, sausage and chicken, rib-eye steak with parmesan and salad, moussaka.

WINE ENTHUSIAST 92 POINTS - "Plum, berry... aromas are on the cusp of smelling baked and cooked but airing allows for expansion and the emergence of iron and schist notes. A full and round palate qualifies as dense, while this Garnacha blend deals cassis, dark plum and chocolaty flavors in front of a composed but chunky finish. Drink through 2023."
