From the Critics:
- "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." -
- "Vivid ruby. 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." -
