"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."

"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. Drink now through 2025."

"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."
Vinous Reverie Notes
“A stunningly profound Priorat.” ~ Robert Parker
Salanques is a steep, three hectare vineyard located near the village of Poboleda where Mas Doix farms 70-90 year old vines of Garnatxa and Carinyena at a elevation between 350 and 450 meters above sea level. These old vines have been supplemented with a small amount of Syrah which was planted in 2000. Each variety is harvested separately and by hand and when they grapes arrive at the cellar they are destemmed and carefully sorted. The wine is aged in French oak for 14 months.
