Tarragona is located in the Catalonia region of northern Spain. It is divided into two sections: The largest expanse is along the Mediterranean just south of Penedes, and the other is further inland. The reason for this division is the the creation of the D.O. Montsant, which was separated from the rest of Tarragona in 2001.
 
The region began as far back as the Roman era, known for its sweet wines from late harvest Garnacha and Moscatel.  More recently the Cava grapes, Paralleda, Xarel-lo and Macabeo have been grown and sourced to Penedes Cava production. 
 
Garnacha is made into rosado and in blends with Cariñena. Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also grown.

  • Blau 2009

    Snoothrank:

    "Sour" and volatile nose. Nice dark color. I think this is a deceptive wine. Initial palate sensation is that thie is a medium-bodied wine with olive branch flavors. As the wine moves through the mouth though, I realize that this is a quite full-bodied wine, and the annoying olive-branch flavor disappears. It doesn't burst with fruity flavor... Read More

  • Can Blau Monsant 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Vibrant red berry aroma. Well rounded with subtle notes of cherry and raspberry countered by a touch of tobacco. Wonderfully and thoughtfully blended. Great wine at this price. Will purchase again. Read More

  • Clos de Noi Montsant Vinyes Velles Negre Samso Spain Table 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A deep red color with black raspberry and spices on the nose. Juicy, with sweet red and dark berry flavors with a strong mineral structure. A nice finish with high-toned red berries. Yum. Read More

  • Cellers Can Blau Montsant 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Always, every vintage that I've had at least, this wine is consistently very good and over delivers. Black fruits woven with herbs, smoke, earth, spice, good firm tannins to balance out the high extraction of fruit. Highly recommended! Read More

    Grenache, Carignan, Merlot, Tempranillo, Cabernet SauvignonThis opens on the nose with distinct black currant and herb notes. Downright grassy at first, then turning minty with blueberry fruit and spicy oak top notes. On entry, this shows some roasted coffee notes along with a distinct impression of sweetness coming from the creamy oak and brigh... Read More
