Winemaker's Notes

Capcanes Costers del Gravet is a deep red ruby color. The wine has complex aromas of ripe cherry fruit, plums, small black berries, and vanilla. There are smoky, toasty oak flavors as well. It is full bodied, with soft tannins, and a wonderful fresh acidity. It's ripe but not overripe and has a good, lengthy finish.

A perfect match for game, beef, BBQ, stew, cheeses, or any toasty, smoky, wild and herb flavors.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Garnacha, 10% Cariñena

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Costers del Gravet is made up of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Garnacha, and 10% Carinena aged for 12 months in new and used French oak. Opaque purple in color, it gives up an inviting nose of wood smoke, mineral, exotic spices, black currant, and plum. In the glass the wine's density and structure are revealed along with loads of chewy, spicy black fruits, plenty of volume, impeccable balance, and a fruit-filled finish, quite an achievement for a $20 wine.
