Blau (Cellars Can Blau) D.O. Montsant Spain, 2011 Red Wine, $12.00, 90 points, begins with bright clarity of a deep purple red color and a clear rim.
There's a lovely floral fruit on the nose.
Varietals are a well balanced 50% Mazuelo, 25% Syrah, and 25% Garnacha.
Having a medium body of bright mouth-puckering acidity and noticeable tannin helps to build support for a cornucopia of black and blue fruit which carry into the juicy finish.
The 14.5% alcohol is almost unnoticeable!
Good as a stand-alone wine, but great with pizza.
Bought at the remarkable full price of $12.00 (what a steal) at the Londonderry Hannaford's super market.
