SOLD OUT! The Mas Donis Barrica is always a terrific wine at a great price, but the 2010 is one of the finest versions of this wine ever produced.
Located in the village of Capcanes, near Priorat, this producer started out making kosher wines for the Jewish population of Barcelona. Discovered in 1995 by Charlotte-based importer Eric Solomon, he knew the winery had tremendous potential and added them to his portfolio of wines. The rest is history as the winery now produces a full range of wines that consistently over-deliver in a huge way.
2010 Capcanes Mas Donis Barricas
Drinks like Priorat at half the price!
The 2010 is a blend of 85% Garnacha (70 year old vines) and 15% Syrah (30 year old vines) aged for nine months in new and used French and American oak. It offers up a boisterous, spicy nose of floral infused raspberry, kirsch and blueberry leading into a savory and succulent palate of ripe berries, exotic spices and smoky mineral.
I don’t know if I agree, but Robert Parker said “this beauty could easily pass for a Grand Cru Burgundy”, so take that for what it’s worth. He scored it at 92 points and said to drink it over the next 5-6 years too! The good news is that we have about 7 cases on hand, the bad news is that this isn’t going to last long.
