Description
 

90 Points - International Wine Cellar
The vineyards of Bodegas La Cartuja Priorat located in a 24-hectare (59 acre) estate named La Solana (‘Les Solanes’ in Catalan) within the heart of Priorat, between the towns of El Molar and El Lloar, 4.5 km southwest of Gratallops. The La Solana vineyard sits at 250 meters (820 feet) elevation with slopes that have a southeastern exposure. The soils of this vineyard are composed of volcanic slate and sand, which impart the signature of Priorat's terroir- distinctive mineral and graphite flavors. The soils of Priorat is poor in nutrients and have a low pH, which results in brighter, fresher wines. One of Priorat’s distinctive characteristics is the combination of a cool climate’s acidity with a warm climate’s ripe tannins. Cool nights contribute generous aromas, vibrant freshness, acidity and assertively expressive fruit in the wine.

Bright violet in color, Bodegas La Cartuja Priorat is a blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Carinena. It is aged for 6 months, half in 225-liter and half in 300-liter French oak barrels. The result is a supple yet sold red with good density and structure, offering a highly perfumed bouquet that evokes aromas of dark berries, fresh flowers and mountain herb. The full-bodied palate is juicy and energetic on the palate, with a silky texture and fine-grained tannins accompanied by notes of blackberry, cassis, graphite and crushed rocks. Pronounced minerality and subtle smoky undertone appears on the finish.
