The D.O. Montsant is a horseshoe-shaped appellation that surrounds the D.O. Priorat on three sides. Celler Can Blau selected the village of Mas Roig as the base of operations and purchased 60 acres of vineyards with an average age of 35 years. The Cariñena is planted on sandy clay soil; Syrah on chalky soils and the Garnacha on slate.

Wine EnthusiastA big, balanced, bombastic Montsant made from one-third each of Mazuelo, Garnacha and Syrah. On the bouquet it's the fruit that endears but mocha and vanilla stick out. The flavor profile sees lemony oak, blackberry, blueberry and minerality. Spicy and long late with size and grip. Drink now through 2015.

Wine SpectatorThis plush, rich red delivers ripe flavors of blueberry and blackberry, with toast and cola notes and a spicy finish. The tannins are firm and well-integrated, and there's enough acidity for balance. A fine example of the modern style. Drink now through 2016. 400 cases imported.
