Tarragona is located in the Catalonia region of northern Spain. It is divided into two sections: The largest expanse is along the Mediterranean just south of Penedes, and the other is further inland. The reason for this division is the the creation of the D.O. Montsant, which was separated from the rest of Tarragona in 2001.
 
The region began as far back as the Roman era, known for its sweet wines from late harvest Garnacha and Moscatel.  More recently the Cava grapes, Paralleda, Xarel-lo and Macabeo have been grown and sourced to Penedes Cava production. 
 
Garnacha is made into rosado and in blends with Cariñena. Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also grown.

  • Pinyolet Seleccion 2009

    Snoothrank:

    80% Garnacha, 20% Carignan Smoky and a bit funky on the nose and quite leathery like an old catchers mitt. This gains nice white pepper spice and floral tones with some air but remains somewhat low key on the nose. Very smooth and polished, another wine that sneaks across the palate with its near perfect balance and integration of acid and tanni... Read More

  • Celler de Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica Old Vines 2010

    Snoothrank:

    85% Garnachas 15% Syrah Hugely aromatic, this explodes in the glass with darkly plummy fruit, sweet licorice candied notes, leather, earth, and candied violet aromas. Soft and compact on entry, there's real depth on the palate here. The tannins sit low in the earthy, licorice driven fruit that is supported by well integrated acids lending this a... Read More

  • Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, jammy and little spicy on the nose with licorice and lavender scented wild strawberry fruit that shows a little dusty white pepper top note. Moderately big in the mouth this is classic grenache, with real volume in the mouth, and surprising god acids driving tart wild berry fruit that is nicely contrasted against some slightly bitter herba...

  • Celler de Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica Old Vines 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Amazing nose of oak and fruit, I get floral and herbal hints as well. Lots of raspberry jam and some mineral flavor. This wine is complex but very approachable and supremely enjoyable. At this price, it's a fantastic buy and will absolutely not disappoint. Tastes like it would easily cost twice as much, or more. Would go great with a holiday bee... Read More
