2016 Capcanes Mas Picosa Montsant
The viticulture roots date back to the 13th century. Prior to Phylloxera, at the turn of the 19th century, the valleys were very densely planted. After the devastation caused by this insect, many farmers were seduced by the Spanish Industrialization, left the countryside and moved to the big cities. From a former Capçanes population of 2500 people, presently there are 400 left. Only about 1/5th of the original vineyards were replanted, predominantly with Garnacha. Some of those vineyards, approaching 100 years in age, still exist, although yields are low.
Aromas of cherry liqueur, blackberries and spice cake. Ripe fruit and jam flavors with soft sweet tannins, bright and engaging.
30% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Tempranillo, 5% Carignan
