The Can Blau is purple-colored with a nose of cedar, mineral, baking spices, blueberry, and black cherry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with layers of flavor, enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. It will be at its peak from 2010 to 2018. 90 Points Robert Parker
Review
"The 2008 Can Blau is a blend of Carinena, Syrah, and Garnacha from Montsant where value can still be found. Dark ruby-colored, it reveals a compelling bouquet of mineral, smoke, spice box, black cherry, and plum. Sweet and smooth-textured on the palate, this medium to full-bodied effort has excellent depth, concentration, and length." Robert Parker

Wine maker notes
The vineyards of Garnacha planted on soils of slate -llicorella-, Carinena vineyards grow on clay soils and Syrah vineyards located on limestone soils to obtain this complex wine after 12 months of maturing in French oak barrels.

Producer
Cellers Can Blau, founded in 2003, is one of the oldest projects of the Gil Family in Jumilla. Placed in El Molar, in the D.O. Montsant, this winery is the most diverse project regarding the grape varieties and the type of soils. The D.O. Montsant is nowadays releasing at its best the enological quality of its wines. Differently from its illustrious adjacent D.O. Priorato, in D.O. Montsant we work with unique varieties such as Carinena or Mazuelo and Grenache, planted in and adapted to different types of soils. Nuria Lopez Sarroca is the person in charge of the technical direction of the Winery.
