2015 Mas Doix "Salanques" Priorat

SKU #1391734 93 points Vinous

 A blend of 65% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena and 10% Syrah, the 2015 Salanques comes from a steep, three-hectare vineyard located near the village of Poboleda. This deep ruby/purple colored beauty offers a stunning bouquet of blueberries, raspberries, violets, and hints of resinous herbs and flowers. Medium to full-bodied, with a light, graceful, elegant texture that just glides across the palate, It's not huge, but has plenty of intensity and length. (JR)  (2/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A similar blend of 65% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena and 10% Syrah resulted in a 2015 Salanques with higher ripeness and notably lower acidity, reflecting a much warmer and drier year. It's ripe and with lots of earthiness, mineral and characterful, with ripe fruit without excess, elegant tannins and a polished, sleek texture within the rusticity of the zone. (LG) 92+  (4/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

 This red delivers volume without weight as expressive flavors of black cherry, currant, mountain herb, mineral and toast mingle in a round, supple texture. Light tannins and lively acidity keep this focused. (TM)  (10/2018)

91 points Wine & Spirits

 From the Salanques vineyard, near the town of Poboleda, this is a blend from 90-year-old Cariñena and Garnacha vines, plus younger-vine Syrah. While its oak scents are still present, the fruit flavors already play a leading role, with ripe fig and blackberry, the fruit balanced by generous tannins.  (10/2018)
