    "This is just great." ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    In addition to being serious bang for the buck, this Mas Doix Salanques delivers buckets of flavor and a real party on the palate. What's not to like??

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "The 2013 Salanques is a blend of old-vine Garnacha (65%) and Cariñena (25%) and young-ish Syrah (10%) fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and matured in 50/50 new and second use French oak barrels. This has the complexity, depth and concentration of the top wines from many wineries. It's not particularly powerful, on the contrary, it is built on elegance and balance, with fresh aromas and a refined palate. It has clean, focused and pure aromas and flavors with very good acidity and very fine tannins. This is just great. Drink 2016-2022." Oct 2016

    Wine Specator: "This vibrant red offers lively flavors of black cherry, plum, cola and mineral, set in a thick texture supported by firm tannins and orange peel acidity. Shows an alluring balance of power and polish. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases imported." Oct 2016

    Winery:  "Balance, intensity and purity. Transmits the authentic character of Priorat."
