Montsant Wine


This little wine-making area is part of Catalonia in Tarragona, and is to many considered a “baby Priorat” since it surrounds that region, producing wines from many of the same grapes and styles. But these wines have less pedigree and are considerably more affordable, but can be comparable in quality. In other words, this is a great go to region if you want a Priorat style on a budget. 
Montsant also shares much of Priorat’s distinguishable soil type, licorella, which is comprised mostly of granite and slate, with a shiny, black appearance. The vines are on elevated slopes which get plenty of sun by day and benefit from cooler temperatures at night. These conditions produce grapes that make complex wines of excellent quality and food friendliness. 
The main grapes grown are Garnacha and Cariñena. Other grapes such as Ull de Llebre (the local Tempranillo name), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah are also grown and sometimes used as blending Read more »

  • Pinyolet Seleccion 2009


    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


    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

    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
