2010 Mas Doix "Doix" Costers de Vinyes Velles Priorat

SKU #1263812 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Costers de Vinas Viejas is a blend of 55% Garnacha and the rest Carinena from vineyards planted in 1902 on slate slopes. The wine has the power, concentration and balance of the old vines and is a textbook Priorat with those alluring aromas of wet slate and ripe blackberries. The 16 months aging in new French oak become unnoticeable when you have this intensity of fruit, and the aromas and tannins from the barrels are neatly integrated into the fruit. This is a big, elegant Priorat that should evolve nicely in bottle. 5,500 bottles were produced in 2010. Drink 2015-2025. (LG)  (2/2014)

 Inky ruby. A heady, smoky bouquet evokes cassis, blueberry, vanilla and potpourri, with a bright mineral accent building with air. Silky and seamless in texture, offering vibrant red berry and vanilla flavors sharpened by zesty acidity and a stony nuance. Clings with impressive tenacity on the finish, leaving floral pastille, oak spice and raspberry notes behind. (JR)  (9/2013)

Wine Spectator

 Showing a pleasing blend of sweet and savory characteristics, this red offers cherry pie and vanilla flavors that mingle with dried herb and smoky notes in a supple texture, supported by light, firm tannins. Focused and lively. Drink now through 2018. (TM, Web-2014)

K&L Notes

Located way up in the village of Poboleda, one 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 "Doix" bottling consists of 45% Garnacha and 55% Carignane from 80-100 year-old vines. Pure mixed berry fruits and spice. Shows great nuance and detail, with spectacular freshness and delineation. This should drink terrifically for at least another decade. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
