Winemaker's Notes

This inky, full bodied Spanish red is bursting with aromas of dark berries, earth, toast, and slate. On the palate it shows balanced acidity and tannin, and roundness with flavors of black cherry and coffee. Previous vintages have been awarded ratings of 90 points and higher from Wine Advocate. We can't wait to see the reviews for this vintage! Ready to be enjoyed today or cellared for 2-4 years.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
91 Points

"The 2007 Can Blau is purple-colored with a nose of cedar, mineral, baking spices, blueberry, and black cherry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with layers of flavor, enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. It will be at its peak from 2010 to 2018."

We discovered this wine about 2 years ago. We drink it all the time. I can't really describe the flavors but I can tell you that we try all sorts of wines and we always come back to this wine. We just bought a case of this and we intend to keep at least 3 bottles on hand all the time.

Learn About Can Blau

The D.O. Montsant, where Can Blau is located, is a horse shoe shaped appellation that surrounds the D.O. Priorat on three sides. It should have been included on the Priorat appellation but was excluded. Can Blau is composed of 60 acres of vineyards with an average age of 35 years. The soils are similar to Priorat with Montsant being a bit more complex with a mixture of slate (llicorella), sandy clay and chalk.
