Celler Can Blau 'Blau' 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This purple-colored wine has great aromatics for the price point. It offers up smoke, pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, blueberry, black cherry, and blackberry. Balanced, round, and ripe on the palate, the wine already reveals some complexity.

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.

The 2011 Blau is a blend of 50% Carinena, 25% Syrah and 25% Garnacha from vines aged between 25 and 40 years planted at 600 meters and aged in oak for four months. It has an attractive fresh red currant and raspberry-scented bouquet that is fresh and defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet candied entry. This is well-balanced with a crisp seam of acidity, while the finish is simple but clean and packed full of red fruits. This is a great price for a great little wine. Drink now–2015.

Intense violet hue with a brilliant nose loaded with dark fruit and floral notes. Rich blackberry and plum dominate on the palate, with well-balanced anise and pepper, finishing with plush, velvety tannins.

Supple and tender, yet expressive, this red shows wild berry, garrigue and light vanilla flavors that mingle and glide over light tannins. A pretty wine, with good depth. Mazuelo, Syrah and Garnacha. Drink now through 2020.
