After a meticulous vinification process in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged for 13 months in French oak barrels. Before its bottling, the wine was gently filtered, but not clarified.
Decant this red wine from Montsant of 1 hour before drinking.
Drink Les Sorts Sycar 2016 black label until 2026.
The wine Les Sorts Sycar shows an intense cherry colour with garnet tinges and a purple rim.
As expected, this blend of Carignan and Syrah results in a complex, intense aromatic expression. Smokey notes, nutty aromas and some ripe, jammy black fruit. This Crianza red wine from Montsant also suggests hints of brown sugar syrup, undergrowth, toast and a sharp, mineral undertone.
Smooth and fleshy, this red wine by Celler Masroig is medium to full-bodied and displays hints of dark fruit, some toasted and balsamic notes, hints of Mediterranean garrigue and some sweet, round tannins. Acidity is nothing short of impeccable, as is usual with Montsant red wines. Long finish, with spicy oak notes and a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

A kind of Chateauneuf, with a rustic and deeper twist. Price is simply unbelievable.
Powerful stuff, but not in the least vulgar. My kind of wine.
Yes, this is more than a bargain. Lush, plenty of fruit, very well crafted, balanced and deep. A steal!!
