Can Blau is from the mixed soils of slate, sandy clay and chalk of Montsant which is a horseshoe-shaped appellation that surrounds the D.O. Priorat on three sides.
Cariñena, Syrah, Garnacha blend
Classic raspberry and black cherry bouquet and flavors.
"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
nose of balsam wood, pencil lead, rose petals, cherry, and black
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."
