Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

"Salanques" is the name of the area where the vineyards are, close to the village of Poboleda.

Like other areas of the Priorat, Poboleda lies at high altitude and is characterized by steep, rock-covered hillsides. The vineyards of Mas Doix lie at between 350 and 400 meters above sea level. The vines vary in age between 70 and 100 years old.

Critical Acclaim

"The purple-colored 2007 Salanques is composed of 65% Garnacha, 15% Carinena, and the balance Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 14 months in French oak. Aromas of Asian spices, incense, mineral, plum and black cherry are followed by a plush, opulent, pleasure-bent Priorat that delivers awesome value for this pricy DO. Give it 1-2 years to fully blossom and drink it through 2022.

Salanques is the result of a barrel by barrel declassification of Mas Doix's flagship Costers de Vinas Viejas. "
93 Points

"Glass-staining ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet of crushed red berries, smoky herbs, potpourri and minerals. Lively raspberry and cherry flavors are underscored by tangy minerality and pick up deeper notes of licorice and mocha in the mid-palate. Leaves a trail of juicy red fruit and spice notes behind a nicely persistent, energetic finish. I'd drink this now for its energy and zesty fruit. Note that the price for the excellent 2006 version was $50."
