In Capçanes we are very pleased with the scores that have been obtained this year in The Wine Advocate.
These scores encourage us to keep on working and pursuing excellence from our wines.
- Cabrida 2014: 92 Points.The 2014 Cabrida already shows the new direction for the estate—especially for 2015—towards finer, more complex and delicate wines with judicious use of oak and more fruit-driven and fresh. Those seem like deep changes, and this pure old vine Garnacha is the blend of many micro-vinifications in open 500-liter oak barrels with some floral and wild berry aromas, and a core of sweet spices and earth. The palate is quite delicate, with a fine texture, with chalky tannins and good freshness.
- Mas Donis old vines 2014: 90 Points. It's a mini-Rhône blend of Garnacha with some 15% Syrah from old vines matured exclusively in concrete. The nose is like Garnacha cotton candy with red fruit and a touch of smoked meat. The tannins are soft and the texture is silky, ending with a very tasty note.
- La Nit dels Garnatxes Calissa 2015: 88 Points. The wine is intensely fruity and young, with a bit of a raw nose reminiscent of young must. It's fresh and straightforward, with fine tannins and good freshness.
