Celler de Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica Old Vines 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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 smooth if slightly chunky feel in the mouth. the fruit is dark, and plummy like the nose, if a bit creamy and dense with violet and boysenberry flavors in the mouth. the tannins really build on the palate, showing a touch of wood tannin on the backend before this fades into a long, minty, medicinal toned finish, which is a little hot. Rich, powerful and a bit on the funky side this lacks a bit of elegance but makes up for that with it extracted, ripe personality. 87pts

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 beef or lamb.
