Look, i don't know that much about wine, but I know I liked this one about as much as any I've had. I think the bottle I bought at the Wine Shop (101 and Minnetonka Blvd in Minnetonka) was about $14-$15, and I noticed they had it at Byerly's in Chanhassen for $12.99 yesterday. I will definitely be buying a few more at that price.

The 2004 Mas Donis Barrica is 85% Garnacha from 80+-year-old vines and 15% Syrah aged for 8 months in French and America oak. Opaque purple, it has a wonderfully expressive nose of spice box, pencil lead, pepper, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. On the palate the wine is full-bodied with layers of ripe, spicy black fruits, nicely concealed tannins, and a long, pure finish. It is an outstanding value for drinking now and over the next 4-6 years.

Bright, dark red. Superripe nose offers licorice, flowers and spicy, smoky oak. Creamy, supple and sweet, with fairly dense flavors offering good definition and supported by solid structure. Not complex but serious and packed with fruit.

A custom cuvee for the American importer, the 19,000 case 2003 Mas Donnis Barrica was aged ten months in both American and French oak. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of blueberries, black currants, cold steel, and minerals. Evocative of a baby Priorat, it possesses an amazing fragrance, considerable nobility as well as complexity, medium to full body, and a long, concentrated, heady finish. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years.

Mas Donis Barrica is a custom cuvee made for importer Eric Solomon using old-vine Garnacha (80+ years) and Syrah (30+ years). The 2005 Mas Donis Barrica is 85% Garnacha and 15% Syrah aged for 8 months in French and American oak before bottling without fining or filtration. It offers up an expressive nose of slate, mineral, licorice, violets, black cherry, and blueberry. Layered, long, and complex, this spicy, hedonistic effort has 2-3 years of aging potential but can be enjoyed now without guilt. It is a great value.

Dark red. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by suave vanillin oak spice and smoked meat. Broad dark berry flavors pack impressive flavor punch and offer excellent clarity. Pure and expansive on the finish, with the gentle vanilla quality repeating. Drinking very well now.

Blending Garnacha from 80 year old vines with young impetuous Syrah from the steep hills of Spain's Tarragona region creates a medium-bodied wine with strong characteristics of dusty earth, ripe red fruit and festive spice. Formidable tannins give way to a soft, pleasant finish. Perfect to enjoy now, or cellar a few bottles and enjoy the evolution of this wine.

Ruby-red. Powerfully scented bouquet of raspberry, blackberry, cocoa powder and smoky minerals, with a sexy floral overtone. Lush and creamy but lively, with strong red berry flavors and supple texture. Highly alluring wine with lingering sweet notes of rose and red berries.
