Capafons-Ossos 2007 Sirsell from a relatively challenging vintage (no upper-tier wines were produced) was sourced from organically farmed vineyards and aged for 17 months in French oak. It is a blend of 40% Garnacha, 29% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Syrah and Carinena. Aromas of earthy minerality and brooding black fruit lead to a compact wine in need of greater volume. However, it possesses ample savory black cherry fruit and moderate length. It is unlikely to evolve significantly and should be consumed over the next several years.

Opening up with ripe fruit flavors of red cherry, strawberry and dark plum with suggestions of tobacco, forest floor, sage and mint. Once in the mouth it is robust with mature tannins and a dark minerality to offset ripe red fruit flavors. It finishes vigorously with herbal undertones.”

Wine maker notes
“Sirsell,” the Catalan word for a grapevine tendril, is a smooth, single-vineyard Priorat wine produced from Capafons-Osso’s Mas de l’Amoros property. The grape varieties grown in the vineyard, whose name translates as “Lovers’ Lane,” are Garnacha, Carinena, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This wine possesses a dark ruby color with aromas of ripe blackberries, Mediterranean herbs and sweet spice. Lively and fruit-forward, this wine is also surprisingly round with mature tannins and a very long finish.
