2008 Mas Doix "Costers de Vinyes Velles" Priorat

SKU #1543213 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 DOIX Costers Vinyes Velles reveals a deep purple color with outstanding aromatic complexity. Notes of liquid minerality, licorice, lavender, Asian spices, and black cherry lead to a supple, savory effort loaded with spice and personality. There is a nicely concealed structure that will allow the wine to evolve for several years although it is approachable now. (JM) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. A pungent, highly aromatic bouquet evokes blackberry, cherry-cola, incense and violet. Ripe and muscular but surprisingly lithe, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors complicated by licorice and candied flowers. Slow to open but extremely promising, finishing with serious power and length. (JR) 92+ Inner quote mark (11/2011)

K&L Notes

91 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "A blend of 55% Carignan and 45% Grenache from 80-100 year old vines and raised entirely in new oak for 14 months, this nose is dominated by the new oak whilst the palate is medium-bodied with good acidity on the entry. Nice focused, if not showing as much depth as I think vines of such age should offer. Still, the finish is showing fine delineation with fine tension on the finish. I think this will improve with bottle age." (09/2011)
