2004 Mas Doix "Salanques" Priorat (Elsewhere $45)

SKU #1025926

94 points from the Wine Advocate! They say, "The 2004 Salanques is the second wine of Mas Doix made from barrels not making the cut for Costers de Vinas Viejas. It is 65% Garnacha, 20% Carinena, and equal parts Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged 14 months in French oak. Inky purple, the wine has a lovely perfume of mineral, truffle, pencil lead, kirsch, black currant, and blueberry. Ripe and full-bodied, the wine has a velvety texture, superb depth, and gobs of flavor. Drink this pleasure-packed wine over the next 8-10 years. 2/28/2007" 91 points from Tanzer's International Wine Cellar. He says, "Ruby-red. Vivid aromas of raspberry, strawberry, red licorice and exotic baking spices. Explosive red berry flavors are suave, sexy and almost sweet, but there's just enough acidity and fine tannins to ensure focus and lift. The fruit builds on the rich finish, which features a liqueur-like strawberry quality that manages to retain freshness. Captivating and flat-out delicious. (Sep/Oct 2006)
