Capcanes Mas Donís Old Vines 2017
Medium ruby with violet shades. Very nice glycerin mouthfeel and texture. Wild red and black berry flavors, cherry, spices and herbs. Well-integrated elegant smooth vanilla oaky toasty notes. Ripe mouthful and complex on the palate. Loads of sweet vibrant fruit. Medium to full-bodied with soft and velvet tannins and nicely refreshing finish. Pairings: Lamb, chicken, pork, sausage, pizza, pasta, rice, vegetable (mussaka, ratatouille), cheese.
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Mas Donis Old Vines is a blend of 50% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena and 20% Syrah fermented separately in stainless steel, and the Syrah and Cariñena matured in barrique until the components were blended before bottling in June 2019. It's a heady Mediterranean red blend-generous and round with a pretty floral nose and the aromatic power of the partial carbonic maceration. It has a juicy texture, clean, fruit-driven flavors and a textured mouthfeel. An incredible bargain. 5,000 bottles produced.
