"Sirsell," the Catalan word for a grapevine tendril, is a smooth, single-vineyard Priorat wine produced from Capafons-Osso's Mas de l'Amoros property. The grape varieties grown in the vineyard, whose name translates as "Lovers' Lane," are Garnacha, Carinena, 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.
"This wine's fragrant tannins combine dark chocolate richness with the earthen character of Priorat's black slate soils. It fills the mouth with generous, ripe fruit flavor, its texture sculpted by firm, austere acidity so that all its weight is smooth and contoured. A blend of grenache, cabernet, merlot, carignan and syrah aged for a year in oak, this has a long life ahead."
