Alvaro Palacios

Camins del Priorat Grenache Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

Concentrated yet lively dark berry and candied violet flavors are braced by a core of minerality that lends sharp delineation and lift. Drink it now with a bit of aeration. Alvaro Palacios’ Priorats are some of Spain’s greatest wines. His entry-level bottling consistently over-delivers. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2019) — 2 days ago

Miguel Torres S.A.

Reserva Gran Sangre de Toro Catalunya Garnacha Blend 2014

Riktigt bra vin, både till mat & i gott sällskap. Fyllig, rund, kryddig smak av mörka plommon och vanilj. Lite strävhet sitter kvar i eftersmaken men annars ingen direkt, vilket kan vara både en fördel & en nackdel. — 7 days ago

Clos Mogador

Priorat Red Blend 2000

2000 vintage. Youthful, quite a beautiful surprise. Not a spectacular vintage. This shows well. Brambly and bright. Color still deep with some rust at the edge. Fun! — 17 days ago

Like the lovechild of port and amaro, weirdly. Transcends the sweet/dry binary. Impression of shoe leather. Un gran litrito!! — 2 days ago

La Solana Alta Priorat Garnatxa Blanca 2016

9.3

Terrific Grenache Blanc. Just a bit of an oxidative character on the nose along with a warm note of fresh nutmeg. Key lime and under-ripe apricot dominate the palate, which is fresh, vibrant and textured. It finishes long in a nutty way that echoes the nose. — 8 days ago

Altos D'Oliva

Gran Reserva Catalunya Garnacha 2005

Rich and complex. Opulent nose. Cherries, ripe berries, vanilla bean, cedar, rare beef. Mission figs and balsamic vinegar on the lengthy finish. Enough tannin to "carry" the wine. Excellent value. — 11 days ago

Sao Del Coster 15

S Priorat Carignane Blend

Purchased 2015 for $25 at Grand Cata on 3/5/19. Decanted 3/9/19. Medium bodied. Bright red. Leather smoke tarragon. Touch of orange peel. Peaks of acid and tannin way back on caudal palate. Long Black Cherry finish after ten minutes open. Licorice turns to tarragon after 25 minutes. Aromas and body of light milk chocolate & caramel. — 11 days ago
