Can Blau 2005
This dark spicy Spanish red from the Montsant region of Spain is a blend of Syrah, Carignan, and Grenache. The aromas are very fruit driven and the Syrah seems very prevalent in the nose. Black raspberry, dark fruits and oak dominate the nose while the flavors are of spicy black currant, blackberry, and oak with a firm but fruit forward finish. A nice effort for the price and a beautiful package to boot! I score the wine 87 points.
