WTN: Capcanes, Peraj Petita, 2006 (K)

Postby Daniel Rogov » Thu Aug 07, 2008 4:31 pm

The Spanich cooperative Capcanes has captured the attention of many of our forum members because of its two kosher wines, Peraj haAbib which is the first wine and Peraj Petita, the second wine. The 2006 Peraj Petita is now becoming available in Israel and in the USA (broadly from kosher dealers in the USA and exclusively from Mincol in Tel Aviv - phone Remy at 054 4227380).

I had sampled the 2006 wine earlier (4 Sep 2007) and then again today in my blind tastings. Today's tasting note (consistent with the earlier tasting) follows.

Capcanes, Peraj Petita, Monstant, Spain, 2006: Think of this as the second wine of Peraj HaAbib if you will, but whereas that wine goes for depth, concentration and aging potential, this lighter wine is destined for earlier and easier drinking. Developed primarily in stainless steel, with only 15% oak-aged, this medium-bodied, ruby towards garnet blend of Garnacha del Pais, Tempranillp (known in the region as Ull de Llebre) and Samso (the local name for Carinena or Carignan), shows soft tannins integrating nicely and with generous raspberry, red plum, cassis and cola aromas and flavors, those with an appealing mineral overlay and just the barest hint of sweetness on the long finish. Drink now-2011. Score 90. K (Re-tasted 7 Aug 2008)

Menach, Hi....

As noted above:

... this medium-bodied, ruby towards garnet blend of Garnacha del Pais, Tempranillp (known in the region as Ull de Llebre) and Samso (the local name for Carinena or Carignan) ...

Ya'akov, Hi....

I have not yet tasted the 2006 Peraj Ha'Abib and do not know if it has been released to the market. If you know otherwise, please let me know... At any rate, my tasting notes follow for the 2004 and 2005 releases.

Capcanes, Flor di Primavera/Peraj Ha'Abib, Monsant, Catalunya, Spain, 2004: A blend this year of 35% each Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% of Carinena. Super-dark garnet reflecting in part a 42 day maceration period, with still firm tannins needing time to settle down but with balance and structure that bode well for the future. Opens with spicy wood, that quickly residing to show plum and currant fruits, those complemented well by white pepper, sweet herbs and a light mineral note on the finish. Unfined and unfitered, the wine will be at its best only from 2008 and then should cellar nicely until 2015. Score 92. K (Tasted 8 Nov 2006)

Capcanes, Flor di Primavera/Peraj Ha'Abib, Monsant, Catalyuna, Spain, 2005: Much as we have come to know it, a full-bodied, dark garnet towards royal purple blend of Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carinena (Carignan), showing firm tannins those already integrating nicely with spicy wood and black fruits. On first attack blackcurrants and purple plums, those followed by blueberries, spices and Mediterranean herbs. Remains one of the best kosher wines of Europe. Approachable and enjoyable now but best 2010-2016. Score 92. K (Tasted twice with consistent notes 11 and 17 Apr 2008)
