Can Blau Monsant 2012

Member Review by puhnner:

Had this with dinner during a visit to Dallas. A pleasant little number. This is a review from International Wine Cellar - my sentiments. '...Inky purple. Spice-accented aromas and flavors of blackberry, boysenberry and licorice, with black pepper and mineral nuances. Juicy and precise, finishing with very good energy and lingering spiciness. This is still a baby.' Would love to taste this again in a couple of years.

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.

This is the wine I buy as a special gift, and it's the wine I can't resist buying anytime I'm in a store that has it.

Smooth, perfectly blended Spanish wine. Full bodied without being too overwhelming. After my first bottle I ordered a case!

The 2008 Can Blau is a blend of Carinena, Syrah, and Garnacha from Montsant where value can still be found. Dark ruby-colored, it reveals a compelling bouquet of mineral, smoke, spice box, black cherry, and plum. Sweet and smooth-textured on the palate, this medium to full-bodied effort has excellent depth, concentration, and length. Drink it over the next 6 years.

(A blend of carinena, syrah and garnacha) Inky purple. Sexy aromas of blueberry and boysenberry compote are complemented by cinnamon and mace, along with a subtle smoky undertone. Gains weight and richness with air, picking up notes of mocha and candied flowers. I looked for tannins but failed to find them. Extremely attractive right now.
