Review:

"(aged in a combination of new and used French oak for one year): Inky ruby. A potent, mineral-accented bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, potpourri and incense, with a vivacious, smoky mineral element. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering intense blueberry and cherry compote flavors that deepen and expand with air. The gently tannic finish hangs on with serious fruit-driven persistence, showing outstanding focus and spicy lift. - Josh Raynolds"

Mas Sinen Coster Reserve Priorat 2010 is made from Mas Sinen Coster Reserve Priorat 2009 is made from 50% Grenache, 40% Carinena and 10% Cabernet. 50 year old vines. Aged for 12 months in oak. Light filtration. Strong and flavorful

Review:

(half garnacha and half carinena): Vivid purple. Explosive dark fruit preserve and incense aromas show excellent clarity, picking up cola, mineral and Indian spice notes with air. Stains the palate with intense black and blue fruit flavors, with juicy acidity adding lift and cut. Rich yet energetic and precise, finishing very long, on an emphatic mineral note and with fine-grained tannins sneaking in late."

Review:

"(45% garnacha, 30% carinena, 10% cabernet sauvignon, 10% syrah and 5% merlot): Bright violet color. A pungent, smoke-accented bouquet evokes fresh cherry and licorice, along with a strong floral overtone. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering open-knit dark fruit and rose pastille flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Subtle tannins add shape to the very long, sweet finish, which leaves zesty mineral and floral notes behind. - Josh Raynolds"

Winery: Mas Sinen

The Mas Sinen Estate
Mas Sinen is located in the village of Poboleda, in the province of Tarragona. The winery dates back to the 19th century and has been in the family for a few generations. Mas Sinen is a beautiful estate made of stone and surrounded by the family vineyards. Today, Salvador Burgos and his wife Conxita Porta, together with their two daughters, continue the family tradition using the most modern technologies to produce high quality wine from the Priorat Denomination of Origin.

The ancient Mountainous region of Priorat incorporates nine villages of wine production. They are:
- Gratallops
- Bellmunt del Priorat
- Torroja del Priorat
- Poboleda
- Porrera
- La Morera de Montsant
- Escaladei
- La Vilella Alta
- La Vilella Baixa
- El Llorar
- El Molar
The vineyards measure 1.662,55 hectares on size or 4,106.50 acres.
Priorat is about vines per hectare and not about hectares, because the yields are so low.
The name Priorat comes from the word Priory and refers to the 12th century Carthusian Priory established in the region
The old vines in the Priorat region are almost entirely Garnacha and Carignane.
Soil type: local schist called llicorella (decomposing soil type).
Prior to 1979 very few wineries were in production and the area was becoming depopulated. The interest and revolution in Priorat was created by five wineries whose names all began with the word Clos.
1. Clos Mogador - Rene Barber - the modern day pioneer of the region
2. Clos Martinet
3. Clos de L'OBAC
4. Clos Erasmus
5. Clos Dofi - famous winemaker, Rock star and self prom Alvaro Palacios

Today many new small producers with less than 3,000 cases in production are emerging from this area.
Prices for the wines are high and Priorat along with Rioja are the two regions entitled to the highest quality designation by D.O. law: Denominacion de Origen Calificada or DOQ
Today there are 73 wineries in Priorato with new ones coming all the time.

Wines are designed to age for 10-20 years. The styles vary, but Priorat reds are normally dark colored, muscular, tannic, ripe, rich in alcohol in nature Think Chateauneuf-du-Pape from Spain with a Spanish twist.

 

The Mas Sinen Vineyards
The vineyards measure 15 hectares total. They are planted in terraces, in the slopes of the "Mas Sinen" mountain and are situated 300-500 meters above sea level, cultivated under organic methods. The vines are 5 to 50 years old planted to local schist called llicorella (decomposing soil type) which is typical of the Priorat region.
