"Sirsell," the Catalan word for a grapevine tendril, is a smooth, single-vineyard Priorat wine produced from Capafons-Ossó's Mas de l'Amoros property. The grape varieties grown in the vineyard, whose name translates as "Lovers' Lane," are Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This wine possesses a dark ruby color with aromas of ripe blackberries, Mediterranean herbs and sweet spice. Lively and fruit-forward, this wine is also surprisingly round with mature tannins and a very long finish.
55% Garnacha pais, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cariñena
"Reedy, attractive, classy aromas of red fruits, tobacco and fine herbs are like a red carpet entering the gala. The mouth is structured and tannic but not hard or biting; flavors of red berry, plum and cherry lean towards sweet, while the finish is long, medicinal and on the money. Drink now through 2014."
