Celler Can Blau Can Blau 2015

Member Review by Jimmy Cocktail:

It is a blend of 40% Mazuelo, 40% Syrah and 20% Garnacha (Grenache). It is a full bodied wine with a luxiorious dark ruby color that gives you a strong nose of plum and blackberry. There is a great depth to the flavor with the plum and blackberry up front and a hint of spice and a nice mineral finish. When it's all said and done, there is just a touch of blackberry that lingers teasingly. This wine is ready to drink now but a little time out of the bottle won't hurt it.

A Spanish classic; inky GSM (Grenach Syrah Mazuelo) blend you can chew on. I hesitate to say the 2007 is drinking really well now (Spring 2009), give it a year to mellow out and it will be as delightful as the 06.

Very California style - big, bold, fruity, high alcohol. Nice, rich color.

Intense and complex, with a big cherry aroma. I love Spanish wines, and this one was no disappointment.

I had the 2007 - it was excellent. very good with lamb stew. It was really good 2nd glass in- the flavor came around. Heavy base, fruity on top. It held over to day 2 as well (though not as complex).

Lovely deep, dark purple-red. Smooth and fruity initial burst with classic raspberry and black cherry bouquet and flavors.

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.

The 2006 Can Blau is one of the finest values in the marketplace. Composed of 40% Carinena, 40% Syrah, and 20% Garnacha, 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 and enough structure to blossom for another 2andndash;3 years. Drink this lengthy effort over the next 6andndash;8 years.

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.

Big and dark, and it comes with no shortage of prune, blackberry, smoky oak and depth. A lusty flavor profile filled with blackberry, cola, clove and chocolate is stout and satisfying, while the dark finish sports licorice and bitter cacao. Forthright and chunky wine. Drink now into 2011.

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.
