2004 Celler el Masroig Les Sorts Vinyes Velles
Celler el Masroig Les Sorts Vinyes Velles is a gorgeous old-vines red wine from the Montsant region of northeast Spain. The Montsant region received DO status in 2001 and lies west of Barcelona bordering on the north of Priorat. Celler el Masroig was founded in 1917 as the Cooperativa of El Masroig. It is an association of grape and olive oil producers with approximately 300 members who are associated owners of the company. The winemaker is the young and dynamic Carles Escolar, who strongly believes in the potential of the Montsant appellation. Jay Miller of Wine Advocate praised the winery in April 2008: “Celler El Masroig, located in the up-and-coming region of Montsant, is a role model for how a cooperative ought to function. The winery keeps only the best grapes and sells off the rest to other producers, some of whom are quite well known. The wines are very fairly priced and offer an excellent price to quality ratio from the top to the bottom of the portfolio." The Spanish Guia Penin rated this wine 90 points—a Spanish red wine gem!
Celler el Masroig Les Sorts Vinyes Velles is a blend of old-vines Grenache, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Medium-full in body with a deep cherry color, the wine offers a rich aroma of red and black berries with some smoky notes. On the palate it is velvety smooth and complex with flavors of berries, spice, fine cocoa and creamy oak. Aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels, it delivers a long, elegant finish.
