You may know this label because it has been marketed in the U.S. for a long time by importer Eric Solomon. But Capcanes is a cooperative, founded in 1933, and they make a lot of different wines. They make some to Eric’s specifications, but they make other wines as well, some of which are brought in by other importers. We had never seen this Kosher bottling, which we are told they have made continuously for some time. Made from 60% Garnacha, 20% Tempranillo, and 20% Carinena, the wine ages 5 months sur lie and about 15% sees some oak. The vines for the Grenache are some 25-50 years old and the wine itself shows great depth of fruit and expressive berry flavors laced with mineral notes. Cherry, berry, violet and mineral in the nose, some Grenache sappiness to the fruit but clean lines and bright flavors, we dare say that this is one of the best efforts we have ever had from this winery. Yeah, it’s Kosher, but it’s pretty compelling juice for anybody.
