We do not usually offer wines to you untasted but in certain circumstances when there is enough known about the wine and the offer is so good that we risk missing out completely before we get a chance to evaluate it on our own terms we feel that we have to pass it along to you and let you all decide for yourself.

Mas Donis has been a long time Charlottesville favorite and has been carried by most wine stores for many years as a solid Spanish wine at a great price. In this vintage it has won some excellent acclaim from the professionals and seems as though it will be a pretty good thing.

So here it is. After you read the press below you will know as much about it as we do, but we all agree it looks to be pretty spot on. I am sending this out minutes after receiving the offer and was warned it will sell quickly, that said I have no idea what is in stock. I will follow up with details based on your desire for this wine.

2007 Mas Donis

Mas Donis the fabulous Eric Solomon import from Monsant aka “the poor man’s Priorat”. This delicious and well packaged wine has much critical acclaim, as listed below. Jump on this now!

Wine Advocate: Score: 90

The purple-colored 2007 Mas Donis Barrica is a blend of 85% Garnacha (from vineyards over 80 years of age) and 15% Syrah. Aged for eight months in French and American oak, it was bottled without fining and filtration. It offers up an alluring bouquet of smoke, pencil lead, earth notes, clove, cinnamon, and black cherry. This leads to a wine with remarkable depth and concentration for its humble price, savory flavors, and a fruit-filled finish. Although it is likely to evolve for 1-2 years, there is no reason to delay gratification.

International Wine Cellar: Score: 90

Ruby-red. Powerfully scented bouquet of raspberry, blackberry, cocoa powder and smoky minerals, with a sexy floral overtone. Lush and creamy but lively, with strong red berry flavors and supple texture. Highly alluring wine with lingering sweet notes of rose and red berries.
