Style: Earthy & Spicy

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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

Pair with rice, pasta, vegetables, stewed meats, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, and cheeses.

Blend: 40% Cariñena, 40% Syrah, 20% Garnacha

Critical Acclaim

"Cherry, pomegranate, mountain herb and smoke notes mingle in this expressive red. There's a gentle texture, yet well-integrated tannins provide structure and bright acidity enlivens the floral finish."
91 Points

"The 2009 Can Blau is made up of 40% Carinena, 40% Syrah, and 20% Garnacha aged for 12 months in French oak. Wood smoke, spice box, incense, lavender, black cherry and plum aromas are followed by a mouth-filling, round, dense wine with outstanding grip and length. It over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 6-8 years."

Style: Earth & Spicy
Overdelivers in a big way. Very much a "mood" wine in the style of Spanish garnacha blends. Remains true to its roots.

One of the most sensual wines I have ever tasted. Filled with earth tones, hints of black cherry, subtle oak and an aroma you won’t soon forget. This one won’t let you down and will have you coming back for more. I would stack this one up against almost any wine. Simply put...remarkable.

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.
