I bought a case of this and the first 2 bottles I drank were mixed. One was awful and the other was average. Opened a third bottle on New Years and it was much better than the previous two. Don't know if first 2 bottles were just off, but hoping the next 9 I have left taste more like this one. Good fruit with lots of different hints, structure and tannins were decent. For the price, it well over delivered.

(Can Blau, Montsant) To say this wine is a tremendous value is an understatement. Ah, Garnacha grown in the mountains of Tarragona! A deep purple-red, it explodes with plum, blackberry, and spice aromatics; on the palate, it's full-bodied, richly textured, and savory. Despite the impact, the wine is balanced, with a smooth, long finish. It's distinctly Spanish, but if you pronounce the name in French, it sounds like a party. Hot Picks
