Mas Donis Old Vines 2015

Montsant, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainThe grenache, merlot and syrah are vinified separately in stainless steel tanks and aged nine months in a mix of new to five-year-old French and American oak barrels. The vines are as much as 50-years-old growing in a mix of alluvial and stony, mineral granite soils along with limestone and slate. The nose is muted with dry undertones and notes of wild black fruits and leather. The entry is dry, with peppery, gamey, black cherry, mineral flavours. The finish is warm, dry and rustic. A fine earthy, full-bodied red wine for a mid-week cassoulet, stew or hamburger. Needs another two to three years in bottle to settle into itself.Tasted: 08 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.99 BCLS Producer: Celler de CapçanesDistributors: Enoteca Bacco
