Type: Red Wine - 35% Garnacha, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cariñena, 10% Syrah 92 POINTS ROBERT PARKER
The very warm aromas with mineral (Priorat) and balsamic notes like rosemary and incense surround the blackberry, black currant and plum aromas perfectly. Mas Sinen has a very complex and expressive nose. In the mouth, it is very warm, powerful, but also very elegant and fleshy. It has a long lasting and intense but elegant finish, filled with minerals, berries, balsamic notes and cacao. This is an absolute wonder to be enjoyed at anytime. It will pair perfectly with stews, red meats, cured cheeses (Manchego, Mahon…) Great for sipping. Keep it and enjoy it for the next 15-17 years!
