JAMES SUCKLING 91 POINTS - "Bold, black fruit, balanced by generous, supple tannins, making this an easy red to enjoy. But it also has some real depth with notes of licorice and earth adding some complexity to the nose and the long finish. Drink now or hold."
40% Garnacha, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Samso (Carignan)

Capcanes is a village hidden away in the Priorato hills inland from Tarragona is the source of many fine wines today but has a long wine growing history.

The viticulture roots date back to the 13th century. Prior to Phylloxera, at the turn of the 19th century, the valleys were very densely planted. After the devastation caused by this insect, many farmers were seduced by the Spanish Industrialization, left the countryside and moved to the big cities. From a former Capçanes population of 2500 people, presently there are 400 left. Only about 1/5th of the original vineyards were replanted, predominantly with Garnacha. Some of those vineyards, approaching 100 years in age, still exist although yields are low.
