Mas Donis Mas Donis Barrica 2007
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.
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.
