93 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, `The 2005 Salanques, a blend of 65% Garnacha, 20% Carinena, and the balance Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, is aged in French oak for 14 months. It has a glass-coating purple-hue with an alluring bouquet of cedar, smoke, slate, blueberry, and black cherry. Youthful and structured on the palate, this potentially complex effort will profit from 5-7 years of additional cellaring. It will be at its best from 2015 to 2030.` (02/08) 90 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Bright red. Zesty red berry aromas are sharpened by white pepper and baking spices. Brisk raspberry and cherry flavors show very good energy and are nicely framed by fine-grained tannins. A focused, nervy example of Priorat, finishing precise and persistent.

Absolutely love this deep, rich, highly concentrated red from Priorat. This is a grenache blend and the "second" label from Mas Doix. Highly recommended!

Lighter reddish marron in color. The nose is a mix of schist, cinnamon, chocolate, and cherries. High acidity with flavors of fresh cherries, liquorice, and minerals. Bright in the mouth with a freshness that makes me want more. 4/5 [NR]

Glass-staining ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet of crushed red berries, smoky herbs, potpourri and minerals. Lively raspberry and cherry flavors are underscored by tangy minerality and pick up deeper notes of licorice and mocha in the mid-palate. ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

A plush texture carries rich flavors of brandied cherry, dark chocolate, cocoa and mountain herbs in this expressive red. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, and the finish is bright and juicy. Drink now through 2014. 1,000 cases imported. -TM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2006 Mas Doix Salanques 750ml

A deep garnet core, brightening to a red/purple rim. This is very expressive and complicated with roasted coffee, plum, black cherry, baking spices and anise.

This beautiful red is expressive, harmonious and intense. Black raspberry and pomegranate flavors are juicy and focused, backed by vanilla, nutmeg, anise and mountain herbs. Elegant on the palate, this drives through the finish with power and length.... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2005 Mas Doix Doix Costers de Vinyes Velles 750ml
