Deep, spicy raspberry with stone minerals and tones of roasted meat jus. Very well built wine! Bold and dry, but smooth. Great minerality. Crushed rocks and wet steel with graphite, blueberries and raspberries. Great purity, texture and length. 91 pts. 12/1/12

A spectacular offering from Priorato that sells for a song (most wines from this region are in the $50–150 or higher range), the 2011 La Cartuja is a 4,000 case blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Carinena (3,000 cases are being exported to the USA). It was aged for eight months in 50% new and 50% used French oak. The wine possesses phenomenal minerality along with notes of crushed rocks/wet steel, graphite, blueberries and raspberries, medium to full-bodied flavors, and sensational purity, texture and length. It should drink nicely for a decade or more.

An amazing value — wines of this quality from Priorat are rarely under $30! Inky, dense and full of robust spices. Drink this with a big juicy steak, especially off the grill. Food pairing: red meats Flavor type: traditional Body type: full Finish: rich

Opaque ruby. Blackberry, smoky minerals and a floral note on the nose. Sappy dark berry flavors show very good depth and pick up bitter cherry and licorice nuances with air. Finishes with sweet, gentle tannins, spicy persistence and nervy cut. This wine delivers very good value for a Priorat.
