Capcanes Mas Donis Old Vines 2016
"Named for the mountains that surround the Priorat, the Monsant has many of the same qualities of its neighbor- namely high elevation to provide freshness and minerality to the wines and a generous climate resulting in richness and concentration. A blend of old vine Garnacha and a modest percentage of younger Syrah, Mas Donis comes from a complex mixture of soils ranging from alluvial clay and limestone, to sand, granite and slate."
"The finest vintage of this cuvée to date, the 2016 Mas Donis Old Vines is 85% Garnacha and 15% Syrah (the Grenache comes from a single parcel called Donis) that was 70% destemmed and aged primarily in concrete. Tasting like a top Priorat with its beautiful blue fruits, violets, ground pepper, rose petals, and amble minerality, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, remarkable purity of fruit, and a great, great finish. Almost too good to be true, just pretend you paid more. Drink up."
