Capcanes Wines Win Top Scores
Royal Wine Corp is proud to share scores recently awarded to Capcanes winery of Spain. Excellent scores in the 90+ range have become commonplace for Capcanes wines, but elite scores of 94 (2007 Capcanes La Flor del Flor) and 95 (2009 Capcanes Peraj Haâ€™abib) are worth sharing.
Robert Parkerâ€™s Wine Advocate, the most widely respected wine reviewer in the US recently sent Spanish wine critic Jay Miller to review the wines of Capcanes. Using words like â€œelegance, power and outstanding gripâ€ Miller awarded the new Capcanes 2007 La Flor del Flor a score of 94, while calling the wineryâ€™s flagship â€œPeraj Haâ€™abibâ€ â€œPowerful, impeccably balanced and lengthyâ€ and awarding it 95 points.
Such scores carry extra importance as they are the highest scores ever awarded to any kosher wine by a major wine publication, let alone the prestigious Wine Advocate. Said winemaker Jurgen Wagner, â€œWe are very proud of the scores Mr. Miller awarded and hope we can continue to produce wines held in such high regard. We are fortunate to have a very loyal following and are excited by the prospect of new consumers learning about and enjoying our winesâ€.
