Winemaker Notes

Capcanes Costers del Gravet is a deep red ruby color. The wine has complex aromas of ripe cherry fruit, plums, small black berries, and vanilla. There are smoky, toasty oak flavors as well. It is full bodied, with soft tannins, and a wonderful fresh acidity. It's ripe but not overripe and has a good, lengthy finish.

A perfect match for game, beef, BBQ, stew, cheeses, or any toasty, smoky, wild and herb flavors.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Garnacha, 10% Cariñena

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Costers del Gravet is made up of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Garnacha, and 10% Carinena aged for 12 months in new and used French oak. Opaque purple in color, it gives up an inviting nose of wood smoke, mineral, exotic spices, black currant, and plum. In the glass the wine's density and structure are revealed along with loads of chewy, spicy black fruits, plenty of volume, impeccable balance, and a fruit-filled finish, quite an achievement for a $20 wine.

High up in the hill, roughly 30 miles inland from Tarragona and 100 miles to the south of Barcelona, lies the village of Capcanes, in the sub-zone of the Tarragona DO called Falset. Essentially, this sub-zone is continuous with the Priorat DO, and the wines from this area have more in common with the wines of Priorato than they do with those from the plains around Tarrragano itself.
