Can Blau Celler Can Blau 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Glass-staining purple. Exotically perfumed bouquet of raspberry, blueberry, violet, cracked pepper and olive, plus a slow-building cola quality. Intense dark berry flavors stain the palate, yet this wine possesses a pinot-like delicacy and precision, with lively mineral and Asian spice qualities adding energy and back-end lift. The cola note repeats on the tangy, focused, very long finish. This wine has the balance to reward a few more years in the cellar but is delicious right now, so why wait?

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.

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.
