    Winemaker's Notes:

    The deep purple-colored 2007 La Cartuja is 50% Garnacha and 30% Carinena, with 10% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah rounding out the balance. Excellent typicity of Priorat; minerality, sweet herbs of lavender and sage, and black cherry and blueberry providing the higher fruit notes. On the palate it has good grip and length; a wine worthy of some bottle age, but deliciously drinkable right now.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is as good a deal as you are going to get from Priorat. The deep purple-colored 2007 La Cartuja is 50% Garnacha, 30% Carinena and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. It offers up an enticing nose of roasted minerals, lavender, incense, black cherry, and blueberry. On the palate it has good grip, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish. The wine could use a bit more depth but at this price who is complaining?

    The Wine Advocate

    50% garnacha, 30% carinena and 10% each of cabernet sauvignon and syrah) Bright ruby-red. High-pitched, mineral-driven aromas of red berries, cherry and fresh flowers. Offers noteworthy purity, with gently sweet raspberry and candied rose flavors perked up by a refreshing jolt of tangy minerals. Leaves a nervy mineral quality behind, along with a touch of anise.
