2014 Mas Doix "Les Crestes" Priorat

SKU #1247990 92 points Vinous

 (aged in used French oak barrels for ten months): Youthful purple. Potent, mineral-accented dark berry and violet scents, with suggestions of woodsmoke and spicecake emerging slowly. The sweet and penetrating palate offers juicy blueberry and cherry pie flavors, along with an enlivening, zesty acidity. Rich yet vibrant in style, finishing with excellent thrust and smooth, slow tannins that contribute shape and grip. (JR)  (1/2016)

K&L Notes

Located way up in the village of Poboleda, on of the last villages before one reaches the Sierra Natural de Montsant, Mas Doix creates Priorats that always have terrifically balanced acidity as a counterpoint to the generous intensity of the fruit. The "Les Crestes" bottling contains Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah from approximately 25 year old vines on average (the Carignane is signifcantly older, though). This wine, particularly in the cooler 2014 vintage, is all about freshness, as one should note as soon as sipping the bright, high toned mixed berry fruits on the palate. A delicious choice to enjoy with tapas or simply grilled meats and veges. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

A cool, fresh vintage combined with vineyards located in one of the cooler villages, and some higher elevation vineyards in Poboleda, makes for this beautiful, purple-fruited wine. Scrumptious, delicious fruit! Snatch these up before a likely big review causes this to quickly sell out.
