The deep purple-colored 2007 La Cartuja is 50% Garnacha and 30% Carinena, with 10% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah rounding out the balance. Excellent typicity of Priorat; minerality, sweet herbs of lavender and sage, and black cherry and blueberry providing the higher fruit notes. On the palate it has good grip and length; a wine worthy of some bottle age, but deliciously drinkable right now.
"This is as good a deal as you are going to get from Priorat. The deep purple-colored 2007 La Cartuja is 50% Garnacha, 30% Carinena and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
