    Winemaker's Notes:

    Varieties: 85% Garnacha & 15% Syrah.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The purple-colored 2007 Mas Donis Barrica is a blend of 85% Garnacha (from vineyards over 80 years of age) and 15% Syrah. Aged for eight months in French and American oak, it was bottled without fining and filtration. It offers up an alluring bouquet of smoke, pencil lead, earth notes, clove, cinnamon, and black cherry. This leads to a wine with remarkable depth and concentration for its humble price, savory flavors, and a fruit-filled finish. Although it is likely to evolve for 1-2 years, there is no reason to delay gratification.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ruby-red. Powerfully scented bouquet of raspberry, blackberry, cocoa powder and smoky minerals, with a sexy floral overtone. Lush and creamy but lively, with strong red berry flavors and supple texture. Highly alluring wine with lingering sweet notes of rose and red berries.

    We like this wine with just about anything... or alone. Sorry, I know that's not technical.

    Despite only 8 mo. in the oak, I found this wine opened up a bit when given a little time to air at which point it was quite nice - rich, earthy and spicy, indeed. Also well concentrated. 89-90 pts.

    A very pleasant surprise. Concentrated, smooth, unique, balanced. Seemed nicely structured without sharp edges or bite. I loved the scent and must accept Tanzer's description (being unable to specifically identify it myself). We found this enjoyable on its own and especially enjoyable with pita bread and black olive hummus. I can see how it might not be for everybody, but I really enjoyed it.

    This much hyped Spanish wine was a bit of a let down. There was too much bite to it for me. Try some of the other Spanish wines.
