Brilliant ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice, smoky minerals and a hint of succulent flowers on the perfumed nose, juicy, round and open-knit; a peppery note adds lift and cut to warm blackberry, bitter cherry and licorice pastille flavors. The long, mineral-accented finish shows very good focus and closes on a youthfully tannic note, leaving cherry pit and floral notes behind - Josh Raynolds.
La Cartuja is a small production cuvee made from organically grown and estate-owned grapes located in the Carthusian Les Solanes estate. It is a fresh vision of Priorat, a wine that is young and approachable.
