About This Wine:

Donis is one of the Capcanes estates high up in the hills behind Tarragona where old vines grow in small plots. After a strict and careful vinification at our cellars in Capcanes the wine is aged in American and French oak barrels for nine months. 85% Grenache, 15% Syrah.


Ratings / Reviews:

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Mas Donis Barrica is a custom cuvee made for importer Eric Solomon using old-vine Garnacha (80+ years) and Syrah (30+ years). The 2005 Mas Donis Barrica is 85 % Garnacha and 15% Syrah aged for 8 months in French and American oak before bottling without fining or filtration. It offers up an expressive nose of slate, mineral, licorice, violets, black cherry, and blueberry. Layered, long, and complex, this spicy, hedonistic effort has 2-3 years of aging potential but can be enjoyed now without guilt. It is a great value." (02/08)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Dark red. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by suave vanillin oak spice and smoked meat. Broad dark berry flavors pack impressive flavor punch and offer excellent clarity. Pure and expansive on the finish, with the gentle vanilla quality repeating. Drinking very well now."
