"The Salanques cuvee is the second wine of Celler Mas Doix, a barrel by barrel declassification from Mas Doix itself. The 2006 Salanques is a blend of 65% Garnacha, 15% Carinena, and the balance Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 14 months in French oak.

Rhone Report 93
"A blend of 65% Garnacha (70 to 90 year old vines), 15% Carinena, 10 % Syrah, 5% merlot, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, from slate soils, and aged for 14 months in French oak, the 2006 Mas Doix Priorat Salanques exhibits first rate aromatics of ripe blackberries, charcoal, sweet oak, and touches of chocolate. While certainly leaning towards the decadent side of the spectrum, this stays in check and shows solid complexity as well as notable restraint. Medium to full bodied on the palate, the wine fills the mouth with loads of fruit thats balanced by good acidity, a round, soft texture, and a chewy, long finish. While no harm in drinking now, this should evolve for 2-4 years and most likely drink well for a decade or more." ~JD

Wine Spectator 92 TOP 100 2009 RANK 53
"A plush texture carries rich flavors of brandied cherry, dark chocolate, cocoa and mountain herbs in this expressive red. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, and the finish is bright and juicy. Drink now through 2014. 1,000 cases imported." ~TM

International Wine Cellar 91
"(65% garnacha, 20% carinena and 5% each of syrah, cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Bright ruby color. Finely etched dark berry and mineral scents are complicated by baking spices, anise and dried flowers. Firm and focused, with energetic blackberry and licorice flavors and a spicy quality emerging with air. This put on weight in the glass and finished with very good, sweet persistence. Drinkable right now." ~JR
