Cariñena, Syrah, Garnacha blend

"The 2006 Mas de Can Blau is a blend of Carinena, Syrah, and
Garnacha. The wine was aged for 20 months in new French oak before
bottling without filtration. Dark crimson-colored, it offers up an alluring

raspberry. Suave and elegant on the palate, it has superb depth and
richness, savory flavors, and a silky finish. It will benefit from another 1-
2 years of cellaring and drink well through 2018."
