Montsant, Tarragona

Cellers Can Blau

Blau Montsant Red Blend 2019

Deep ruby to garnet in color; cassis, black pepper, and black cherries on the nose; medium acidity; high tannins; tastes like black plums, blackberries, licorice, and graphite with a long finish. It's big and bold. A little too much volatile acidity. Punches you in the mouth, but it's tasty. Nellie doesn't like it. — 21 days ago

La Llopetera Conca de Barberà Pinot Noir 2019

Lil bubble of air in the foil, which made me worried. Opened it a couple hours before drinking it to make sure it wasn’t totally off. Tasted upon opening, it’s funky but not off. I’ve had off bottles of Escoda and this wasn’t one. Quite pretty from start to finish. At dinner, a few hours later, on the nose: cinnamon, cherry ludens, Brett/bandaids, lively. Palette: sour cherry, pomegranate, jasmine and other florals, white pepper. Finish has more white pepper and ginger candies with the powdery stuff on them. Sort of tannic still. Acid and tannin indicates we could hold the other 2 bottles for a while. — 17 days ago
