Can Blau Montsant 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Contrary to its illustrious neighbor Priorat, in Monsant one can work with characteristic varieties each one planted in soils of different composition, i.e., sand and clay for carinena, lime for syrah, and slate for garnacha. This project involves the Gil Vera family, Victor Rodriguez and the technical aspects are headed by winemaker Nuria Sarroca. Cherry with purple reflexes, it exhibits a collection of attributes, aromatics, strength and complexity, that brings an almost panoramic view of the possibilities of the DO Montsant. Fruity and impregnated with the soil's notes, it shows wideness of savoriness in mouth and a fresh and spicy finish." -Winery

The Montsant region, located on the periphery of the Priorat D.O., is considered by many to be baby Priorat. Can Blau is a traditional blend of Cariñena, Syrah, and Garnacha. Grown on slate hillsides, this wine is characterized by plush black fruit and underlying minerality.

Dense yet lively, this expressive red shows morello cherry, floral, licorice and mineral flavors supported by light, firm tannins and fresh acidity. Mountain herb and smoke notes keep this from turning candied, but the sweet fruit lingers nicely.
