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.

  • Acoustic Vinyes Velles 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A little expensive perhaps (the victim of the poor pound!) but a delicious, stylish wine. Montsant is a small region lapping around Priorat (had to look that up on an excellent map available at the tasting) that most seemed unfamiliar with. A super blend of Garnacha and Carinena from 15 - 35 year old vines. Read More

  • Buil Giné & Montsant Baboix 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Deep black fruit on the nose -- a bit sweet with good potency. Good acidity and the deep flavors in this bottle makes it a great food wine. Read More

  • Buil & Gine Baboix Montsant 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty tannins dominate the starting palate of this dry wine. Very chewy and still young and a little tart. Read More

  • Buil & Gine Baboix Montsant 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is a bit of a bruiser with dark, spicy fruit on the nose. Lots of cassis and blackberry compete with spice and mineral notes and there is an undercurrent of herbs sauteeed in butter. Pretty well balanced in the moth with fine acidity and a bit of a creamy, rounded feel. The flavors are bright, juicy, and pretty intensely spicy with a bit of... Read More

  • Can Blau Celler Can Blau 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A Spanish classic; inky GSM (Grenach Syrah Mazuelo) blend you can chew on. I hesitate to say the 2007 is drinking really well now (Spring 2009), give it a year to mellow out and it will be as delightful as the 06. Read More

  • Cellars Baronia Montsant Flor d'Englora Negre Jove 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I'll admit that I am in no way a wine fan. I was at Costco of all places and liked the description they gave of this wine and decided to try it. Again I'm not a wine fan but I really enjoy this wine. It's not as dry as other reds I have tried and the taste is very sharp at first and then smooths out, I like that. I went back this evening and ... Read More

    Wine review by hokielanders


  • Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very spicy, aromatic nose with pepper and some other spices that I can't quite put my finger on. Notes of oak accompany berry fruit. Medium body with a somewhat light mouthfeel. Moderately firm tannins. Even though the varietals in this wine are the same as in the Rhone wines I often drink, this wine definitely has a style all its own. Read More
