Capcanes Mas Donis Old Vines 2015, Montsant

92 points, Jeb Dunnuck:

"The deep ruby/purple colored 2015 Mas Donis Old Vines is billed as a poor man's Priorat from Importer Eric Solomon, and I certainly can’t disagree with him. Blackberries, blueberries, peppery, hints of violets and some minerality all emerge from this juicy, ripe, sexy red that's an undeniable joy to drink. The wine is a blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Syrah, brought up all in concrete tanks."

90 points, Wine Advocate:

"The 2015 Mas Donis Old Vines is the custom cuvée for the US market. It's mostly Garnacha with some Syrah fermented separately in stainless steel with some 50% full clusters followed by malolactic in concrete and bottled after 80% of the wine matured in French oak barrels for nine months. There is ripe fruit and little wood here, it's aged in older barrels and they are trying to make it even fresher; starting in 2016 they fermented with some full clusters. Of course, 2015 is a warm and dry vintage, and the wine shows the character of the year, in a nice way, with peachy and floral rather than pruney aromas. It's a very good value, and it's also juicy and approachable and serious enough for more sophisticated consumers."
