The wine advocate 2016:

  • Mas Donis old vines 2014: 90 Points. It's a mini-Rhône blend of Garnacha with some 15% Syrah from old vines matured exclusively in concrete. The nose is like Garnacha cotton candy with red fruit and a touch of smoked meat. The tannins are soft and the texture is silky, ending with a very tasty note.

"It seems like some deep changes have happened at the cooperative of Capçanes with a new technical team and a new direction towards finer, more complex and delicate wines with judicious use of oak, fruit-driven and fresher."

    Celler Capcanes 2012 Mas Donis Barrica Montsant, Spain (Red) Rating: 94p
    Another baby Priorato, the 2012 Mas Donis, a custom cuvée from Eric Solomon, is composed of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah aged nine months in both new and used French and American oak. The Grenache comes from 70-year-old vines, and the Syrah from 30-year-old vines. It is difficult to find a better value than this incredibly rich effort. The bouquet offers up a smorgasbord of aromas, including crushed rocks, spring flowers, kirsch liqueur and blacker fruits. Full-bodied with a velvety, voluptuous texture, and admirable opulence, density, purity and texture, it is nearly impossible to believe that something this good could be priced at $12 a bottle. Consume it over the next year.

    2009 Mas Donis Barrica Old Vines Montsant ($13) (85% garnacha and 15% syrah, raised in French and American barrels that range from new to five years old): Vivid ruby. Explosively perfumed nose displays raspberry, fresh rose and sexy oak spices. Lush but energetic, with vivid red  berry flavors and a silky, seamless texture. Turns more tangy on the finish, which clings with very good tenacity. 90 points
