2005 Mas Doix "Salanques" Priorat

SKU #1038237

93 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Salanques, a blend of 65% Garnacha, 20% Carinena, and the balance Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, is aged in French oak for 14 months. It has a glass-coating purple-hue with an alluring bouquet of cedar, smoke, slate, blueberry, and black cherry. Youthful and structured on the palate, this potentially complex effort will profit from 5-7 years of additional cellaring. It will be at its best from 2015 to 2030." (02/08) 90 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Zesty red berry aromas are sharpened by white pepper and baking spices. Brisk raspberry and cherry flavors show very good energy and are nicely framed by fine-grained tannins. A focused, nervy example of Priorat, finishing precise and persistent." (Sept/Oct 07) And, according to Wine Spectator: "This has crisp focus, with bright cherry and berry fruit and lively acidity. The tannins are light but firm, the oak well-integrated. A vibrant wine. Drink now through 2012." (04/08)
