Mas Doix Priorat Salanques 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

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 it! 60% Grenache, 25% Carignan, 5% Merlot, 5% Cab Sauv, 5% Syrah. Easy-drinking and extremely food-friendly. Highly recommended!

Vibrant and intense, with a huge berry nose and firm tannins. Complex and concentrated.

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
