Practicing for our trip to Priorat /Montsant. I haven’t tried this region of Spain before due to a slight aversion to bright acidity of some other Spanish reds. This is not the case with the two we’ve tried so far.
This is a lush, jammy dark fruit wine with ok balance. Black raspberry, blackberries, plum (but not dull like typical description of plum). The fruit stands out to start and the heat of the alcohol stands out at the end. Wish it came together a little better, but enjoyable. I imagine awesome with some Spanish tapas. So looking forward to this trip!
Any Priorat / Montsant recommendations welcome!!!

Rich dark fruits, blackberries, black cherries, and dark plums. Oak, graphite, a little tobacco and a little black pepper. Medium-strong acidity, medium tannins. The darkness of all the flavors is a little overwhelming, so there could be better balance. But this is a very good value in a modest priced wine.

Dark red color, strong nose of oak and ripe fruit. The taste is dry, full and a little spicy. I've had Can Blau before and it never disappoints!

Not as interesting as the last time we had it. For a granche it could be more exciting
