for this region?


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.

  • Herencia Altes Garnaxta Negra 2013


    This is very tightly wound and quite tannic. Now pour it into a decanter. Let it sit for several hours and .... WHAM! It comes out of its shell. It's lush, fruity and marvelous with roasted meats or chicken. Definitely, let is sit all day or overnight. Read More

  • Montsant "Sola Fred". Celler El Masroig Carignan Spain Montsant Celler El Masroig 2009


    The Solà Fred 2009 has the color of tawny light red. There is a sharpness on the nose with peppery kick. It has intense aromas of sweet cherries and overripe fruit. On the palate the taste is immediately milder and sweeter than I expected, however it rounds out very nicely into a slightly fuller bodied wine. There is bit of sweet linger with... Read More

  • Celler de Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica Old Vines 2012


    Nice substantial red that makes an ideal accompaniment to steak or lamb. When the opportunity to buy this comes along, I always get a few bottles. It has been consistently good from year to year. Big bang for the buck. Read More

Spice-accented aromas and flavors of blackberry, boysenberry and licorice, with black pepper and mineral nuances. Juicy and precise, finishing with very good energy and lingering spiciness. Th...
