Capcanes Mas Donis ‘Negre’ 2007

img_3897A quick note on what is a great little wine. It has some new funky, young and fun packaging and is secured under a screwcap. What more could you want? Mostly garnarcha  with a splash of syrah for something different. 4 months in American oak too. These wines are very consistent from vintage to vintage, which is a great attribute in a house wine.

Bright fresh garnarcha  fruit with some smokey, rocky and toasty notes with raspberry and plum fruit. Easy to drink, but there is a bit of structure there. Under ripe apple like acidity and good length on the finish. More raspberry and raspberry leaf on the palate with some rocky earthy notes. Clean, fresh and cheap. Perfect for easy nights at home or a quick snack in a bar. 87 Pts.
