Medium ruby with violet shades; very nice Glycerin mouth feel and texture; wild berry flavors, cherry, spices and herbs; wellintegrated light and smooth vanilla oak toasty notes; ripe and full, and in spite of its concentration, still fresh and in no way over-matured; very much Garnacha: lots and lots of sweet vibrant fruit; medium to full-bodied with soft and velvet tannins and fresh, inviting finish.
Enjoy with pasta, lamb, pizza or robust cheeses, like Munster, Stilton or Manchego.
"The red wines begin with the 2009 Mas Donis Barrica, a blend of 80% Garnacha and 20% Syrah aged for 9 months in French and American oak. It gives up a fragrant nose of mineral, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry. In the glass it reveals a bit of structure, ripe, spicy black fruits, and excellent length. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-5 years."
