Winemaker's Notes

Crafted of Garnacha from the property's best vineyards, Cartoixa shows a deep purple color with hints of terracotta. A complex layering of soft red fruit compote, chocolate and vanilla come together on the palate. The wine is robust and powerful with ripe tannins that add to intensity. Bottle aging produces a balanced and rounded wine

Critical Acclaim

"Cabernet sauvignon makes up nearly half of this meaty, exuberant Priorat. That provides some tannic tension to garnacha's ripe, decadent chocolate and fig flavors. It strikes the right balance for long-cooked lamb."
