WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Well-applied oak is the greeting; it's mildly lemony and minty. Tight and focused on the palate, with cherry and plum flavors and tannic structure. Turns a touch of herbal in the midpalate due to 50% Cabernet in the blend, but the Granacha and Carignan half keep it in the right lane. Tasty and stylish, with regional style.

Celler de Capcanes, , Spain
Celler de Capcanes
High up in the hill, roughly 30 miles inland from Tarragona and 100 miles to the south of Barcelona, lies the village of Capcanes, in the sub-zone of the Tarragona DO called Falset. Essentially, this sub-zone is continuous with the Priorat DO, and the wines from this area have more in common with the wines of Priorato than they do with those from the plains around Tarrragano itself.

Viticulture
At Capcanes, the altitude ranges from 300 meters to 700 meters, and natural rainfalls is low at around 450 mm. The average temperature in this Mediterranean region is around 15 C and rises to 35 C in the summer. Soil in the lower vineyards is deep, rich and fertile; the higher vineyards and all the terraces are on poor, mineral , stony soils with a granite or slate base. Under the guidance of the two winemakers, Angel Teixado and Antoni Alcover, owner/winemaker of Fra Fulco. Capcanes has progressed to a level of serious quality among Spanish reds, and offers tremendous value.

Vinification
New cellars were built to accommodate new temperature controlled stainless fermentation tanks and 600 new oak barrels, of which about 30% are French. Along with the introduction of a new bottling line, the packaging has been updated, reflecting the new breed of wine produced at Capcanes.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
