Ratings and Reviews
"Coming from the Porrera region of the Priorat, the 2016 Mas d'En Compte is a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Carignan, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from a single parcel, that was mostly destemmed (there are 30% stems) and aged 14 months in used French oak. It’s a beautiful wine that has a pretty, perfumed bouquet of violets, rose petals, road tar, and blueberries. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, elegant red that has good acidity, ample fruit, and a great finish. Its tannins are nicely integrated, everything is in the right place, and it’s one heck of a wine. Drink it any time over the coming decade."
