La Cartuja Priorat 2011

La Cartuja Priorat 750ml 2011     
Sku: 14200

From a single estate of 59 acres located in the very heart of Priorat at 820 feet elevation with southeast facing slopes, La Cartuja showcases the mineral complexities of Priorat in a youthful, approachable style. The nutrient-poor soils here are composed of volcanic slate and sand imparting a mineral and graphite layer of flavor that is a signature of the appellation, combining the acidity of a cool climate with the ripe tannins of a warmer climate.

 Wine Advocate 93 points (Aug 2012)
A spectacular offering from Priorato that sells for a song (most wines from this region are in the $50-150 or higher range), the 2011 La Cartuja is a 4,000 case blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Carinena (3,000 cases are being exported to the USA). It was aged for eight months in 50% new and 50% used French oak. The wine possesses phenomenal minerality along with notes of crushed rocks/wet steel, graphite, blueberries and raspberries, medium to full-bodied flavors, and sensational purity, texture and length. It should drink nicely for a decade or more. ”
