La Cartuja is a blend of 50% Garnacha, 30% Mazuelo, 10% Cabernet and 10% Syrah. Garnacha (aka Grenache) provides the bright red berry flavors, the Mazuelo (aka Cariñena or Carignane) the inky color, the cabernet the structure (body) and the Syrah the spice.
Bodegas La Cartuja's 2008 La Cartuja is a blend of 50% Garnacha, 30% Carinena with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from organically farmed estate fruit aged in French oak for 8 months. It offers up a reticent nose of graphite, spice box, underbrush, lavender, black cherry, and plum. This leads to a plush, sweetly-fruited, concentrated, mouth-filling wine for drinking over the next 5-6 years. It is an amazing value and a great introduction to Priorat.
