89 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2007
($12; 85% garnacha and 15% syrah) Dark red. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by suave vanillin oak spice and smoked meat. Broad dark berry flavors pack impressive flavor punch and offer excellent clarity. Pure and expansive on the finish, with the gentle vanilla quality repeating. Drinking very well now.

A Great Everyday Spanish Red
by Genie B.
This blend of grenache and syrah is fruity. It has soft tannins. You hardly feel any dryness on the palate. Try a bottle when you barbeque tonight. Ribs, juicy hamburgers or steaks will pair well. Enjoy.
For $8, it's a bargain
Yes, it's a little harsh when you open it, but let it breath a little and it will be a different story. That wine still drinks well even after being opened for few days.
Mas Donis Barrica (Spain)
91 Points. A blend of Grenache and Syrah gives this wine a plummy start with a bit of spice on the finish. Hints of leather and dark chocolate add to the wines complexity. An excellent pairing with barbeque

Great fruit and a smooth finish.
Great BBG wine!
by John Illingworth
Delicious! Smooth, fruity and a perfect BBQ wine. This is one of the best value reds from anywhere!
Robert Parker is right on the money, and at this price you can be too!
There's reason Spain is now getting significant attention from newer wine drinkers.. and it's because of their red blends like this! With its deeply aromatic nose, you get an idea of its depth of character on the palate; complex yet.. thoroughly enjoyable!
by Kathy Brindle
Dark berry on the palate with some cedar and spice box notes. A complex, yet easy drinking wine that would be great with any grilled meats or hearty cheeses. At this price, get a case and you are set for a "house red" for the next month!
What a Bargain
Jay Miller from WA gave it 91 points. It's very tasty.
Yum Yum Yum - lmedium body red
Easy to drink, no headache -worth 13
A Super Bargain From Spain

I generally find the reviews on this website to be pretty good. However after purchasing a case of the 05 Mas Donis based on the comments, I'm having regrets. Robert Parker must have surpassed his limit when he finally got around to tasting and assigning it 91 points. This 9 dollar wine should not be confused with anything but a 9 dollar wine. Have a glass with your lunch sandwhich and throw the rest out since it's not worth saving. Or use it to clean your grill.
I'm usually pretty easy to please, but I did not enjoy this wine. It was quite harsh. Perhaps I got a bad bottle. Shouldn't happen with a plastic "cork".
Spain has more acres under vine than any other country and ranks third in production behind Italy and France. Much of this output continues to be hot-country jug wine made to satisfy the everyday thirsts of the domestic and greater European markets

Grenache (aka Garnacha)
One of the more versatile red grapes in the world, Grenache thrives in southern France and Spain (where it is known as Garnacha). Ranging in style from light and fruity to deep, brooding and intense; the grape also suits a variety of ambitions: Grenache can be used in inexpensive wines that offer immediate satisfaction, but it is also successful...
