Professional Wine Reviews for Cellers Scala Dei Priorat Cartoixa 2006

Rated 90 by Stephen Tanzer
(48% cabernet sauvignon, 47% garnacha and 5% syrah): Glass-staining violet. Musky, mineral-accented aromas of cherry, raspberry, dried rose and licorice, with a hint of vanillin oak. Penetrating on the palate, showing good intensity and cut to its cherry and redcurrant flavors. This grew sweeter and suppler as it opened in the glass.

Additional Information on Cellers Scala Dei Priorat Cartoixa 2006

Winery: Cellers Scala Dei

Region: Cataluna

The beautiful Spanish wine region of Catalunya has a history of viticulture which stretches back for over a thousand years, and has been influenced by a wide range of people who moved through the region, and brought their wine making skills and expertise with them. The region itself is a sizeable one, covering an area of sixty thousand hectares, and within this space there resides over two hundred individual wineries, ranging from small, independent and traditional ones to the larger, mass production bodegas known around the world. The terroir of Catalunya is varied, and ranges from being dry and arid, to more lush and green in the wetter parts of the region which are closer to the coast. This variation in terroir results in a fantastic range of grape varietals being grown, and a wide range of wine styles are produced within Catalunya.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
