2010 Celler de Capcanes "Mas Donis" Barrica Montsant

SKU #1137890 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Produced from 85% Garnacha (70-year-old vines) and 15% Syrah (30-year-old vines) aged nine months in new and older American and French oak, it is another under-the-radar wine that dramatically over-delivers. A custom cuvee made for Eric Solomon, it exhibits notes of rose petals, raspberry jam, crushed rocks, spring flowers and kirsch. Stunningly rich and medium to full-bodied, with wonderful vibrancy, precision and minerality, this beauty could easily pass for a grand cru Burgundy – it’s that complex and interesting. I am blown away by what’s in the bottle, but you be the judge. It should drink well for 5-6 years.  (6/ 2012)

K&L Notes

Southwest of Barcelona in the Priorato hills, Celler de Capcanes also makes Kosher and organic wines, although this cuvee is neither.. "Mas Donis" is first in their line of fruity, ready to go Garnacha-based wines. Quoting Wine Advocate: "When I was covering all the Spanish wines, this was one of my great value picks in the early days, and I am thrilled to see there are now 8,000 cases of this 'baby Priorat' from nearby Montsant available in the American market." (06/2012)

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
