Medium ruby with violet shades; very nice Glycerin mouth feel and texture; wild berry flavors, cherry, spices and herbs; well- integrated light and smooth vanilla oak toasty notes; ripe and full, and in spite of its concentration, still fresh and in no way over-matured; very much Garnacha: lots and lots of sweet vibrant fruit; medium to full-bodied with soft and velvet tannins and fresh, inviting finish. Enjoy with pasta, lamb, pizza or robust cheeses, like Munster, Stilton or Manchego.
Smoky and dry for starters, then crisp in the mouth, with bright red fruit flavors of cherry and plum. Picks up oak, heat and sweetness on the finish, but overall this is exactly the type of flavor-packed red wine most people want. Grenache with 15% Syrah.
The red wines begin with the 2009 Mas Donis Barrica, a blend of 80% Garnacha and 20% Syrah aged for 9 months in French and American oak. It gives up a fragrant nose of mineral, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry. In the glass it reveals a bit of structure, ripe, spicy black fruits, and excellent length. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-5 years.
