Can Blau Celler Can Blau 2006
92 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2006 Mas de Can Blau is a blend of Carinena, Syrah, and Garnacha. The wine was aged for 20 months in new French oak before bottling without filtration. Dark crimson-colored, it offers up an alluring nose of balsam wood, pencil lead, rose petals, cherry, and black raspberry. Suave and elegant on the palate, it has superb depth and richness, savory flavors, and a silky finish. It will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and drink well through 2018. (Jun 2009)

A fabulous value from the other side of the famed Priorat appellation (the frugal person's Priorat?), this dense ruby/purple-colored 2004 exhibits wonderful minerality along with beautiful raspberry and blueberry fruit notes interwoven with liquid slate/rock-like characteristics. Medium-bodied with gorgeously pure fruit, this blend of Carignan, Syrah, and Grenache is ideal for drinking now and over the next 5-6 years. There is even more good news as 6,500 cases are exported to the USA.
The 2007 Can Blau is purple-colored with a nose of cedar, mineral, baking spices, blueberry, and black cherry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with layers of flavor, enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. It will be at its peak from 2010 to 2018.
Crisp acidity and toasty oak frame bright cherry, cocoa, leaf and mint flavors in this brisk, medium-bodied red. A bit raw, but lively and focused. Mazuelo, Syrah and Garnacha. Drink now through 2011.
Dark purple. Sexy aromas of blackberry, blueberry, Asian spices and smoked meat. Supple and open-knit, with sweet dark berry preserve flavors, velvety texture and good mineral bite. Manages to be both nervy and concentrated, with very good finishing clarity and cut. Leaves strong blue fruit notes behind and repeats the spicy quality.
Smoky and herbal aromas wreathe cherry and light earthy flavors in this restrained red, which has good grip, opening to plum and licorice and on the finish. Drink now through 2012.
