An extremely dark and mysterious purple-red, Can Blau Red is a very up-front wine that offers an early explosion of black raspberry and cherries on the bouquet. The blue fruits are more prominent upon entry, accompanied by elegant Asian spice and complex violet pastille notes. The Can Blau Red 2012 is chewy and focused, with a refreshingly zesty acidity adding lift and spine, pared with a hint of white pepper, providing bite. The finish is highlighted by a note of bitter chocolate, and fine grained tannins sneaking in late. Its best compliments are with rice, pasta, vegetables, stewed meats, sausage and pork.

Can Blau is located in a horse shoe shaped appellation surrounding the D.O. Priorat on three sides. Can Blau is composed of 60 acres of vineyards with an average age of 35 years, containing soils similar to Priorat with Montsant being a bit more complex with a mixture of slate, sand clay and chalk.

 

 

Brian's February 2016 Pick
Exceptional Wine
Can Blau can and Can Blau does. Terrible joke I know but isn't life sometimes? This gorgeous Red Blend from Spain is fermented in a stainless steel tank and aged in a combination of new and used French Oak barrels for 12 months. Aromas of potent black currants, licorice and cracked black pepper fill the glass as you pour. Woodsmoke, incense and black cherry flavors are followed by a fantastic long and rounded out finish. Paired this perfectly with Chorizo tacos from La Divina.
