Mas Donis Barrica, 2004

The 2004 Mas Donis Barrica is a blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Syrah from the Montsant region of Spain. The wine is aged for 8 months in French and American oak. We had cellared this wine for the past 2 years and decided to open it last night. The color is deep red/purple and is nearly opaque. There is a lovely nose of dark berries, plum, aged cheese, earth. On the palate the wine is medium to full-bodied with layers of ripe black fruits, espresso, tobacco and leather all co-mingling to form a long, pure finish. The tannins and acidity are both restrained and compliment this easy drinking wine. This is another outstanding wine from Spain imported by Eric Solomon.
