    Winemaker's Notes:

    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 CariƱena or Carignane) the inky color, the cabernet the structure (body) and the Syrah the spice.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.
