Mas d'En Compte's red offering the 2007 Tinto is composed of 50% Garnacha 45% Carinena and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 14 months in new French oak. The quality of the 2007 vintage is a village by village comparison and is considered better for Carinena. The wine is a glass-coating purple/black color with aromas of tar licorice mineral and a confiture of black fruits. On the palate it is sweetly fruited (likely the contribution of the 80- to 100-year-old Garnacha vines) jammy and concentrated with enough underlying structure to evolve for 6-8 years. This powerful effort should be at its best from 2015 to 2027. -Jay Miller

A complex bouquet offers raspberry cherry compote potpourri and spicecake. Deeper darker fruits on the palate along with suggestions of allspice and vanilla. Shuts down with air and shows fine-grained tannins and good mineral spine suggesting the wine needs a little more patience. The finish is taut and focused with a lingering touch of bitter licorice and very good persistence.
