Winemaker Notes

Bright and vibrant, medium colored; fresh seductive aromas of cherry and red berry; floral, roses, wild herbs; full-bodied; very fine and complex nose; seductive and almost excentric; intense but elegant flavors of red berry fruit; elegant, light oaky, toasty aromas; fresh and vibrant, lively acidity; gorgeous glycerin sweetness and texture; serious, crispy tannin structure; very good length; pure and sophisticated fruit finish. Pair well with roasted lamb chops, leg of lamb with herbs, roasted crispy duck breast, goat, beef, seared fois gras on anything, grilled vegetable, cheeses, lamb cous-cous.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Cabrida is the winery’s flagship and is composed of 100% Garnacha from low-yielding 70- to 105-year-old vines. It was aged for 12 months in new French oak. Deep purple, the wine has a splendid perfume of pencil lead, scorched earth, smoky black cherries, and black raspberries. This is followed by a high-toned, racy wine with considerable elegance. Its flavors are intense and it is well balanced with a lengthy finish.

Celler de Capcanes, Spain
Celler de Capcanes Winery Image
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.

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.

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.

Surrounding the region of Priorat on all sides, Montsant shares much in common with its neighbor. Though its soils contain less schist than that of Priorat, its old Garnacha and Carinena vineyards produce wines of similar intensity and character.

Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
