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.

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.
