Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The wine is made in an approachable style to be enjoyed young. It is neither alcoholic nor overly tannic. La Cartuja is an uncomplicated example of Priorat. Made with organic, estate-owned fruit, it is aged in oak barrels for only 6 months.
"A spectacular offering from Priorato that sells for a song (most wines from this region are in the $50-150 or higher range), the 2011 La Cartuja is a 4,000 case blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Carinena (3,000 cases are being exported to the USA). It was aged for eight months in 50% new and 50% used French oak. The wine possesses phenomenal minerality along with notes of crushed rocks/wet steel, graphite, blueberries and raspberries, medium to full-bodied flavors, and sensational purity, texture and length. It should drink nicely for a decade or more."
