Finca Dofí Priorat Garnacha Blend 2015

Tasted blind & I whiffed on all my guesses- because I had forgotten lithe, elegant, Burgundy like sappiness CAN come from Priorat, & especially this producer, Palacios. I adore their cheaper bottlings too, for very much the same reasons. With air it’s rose petals & ripe cherries for days on the nose, & a perfectly balanced palate of ripe dark cherries, but also some gaminess which made me think Northern Rhone at first. A real treat, especially for Spanish nay-sayers — 18 days ago

Pétalos Bierzo Mencía 2020

Deep purple with a garnet core. The nose is absolutely ridiculous with jammy fruit and earth. Blue and black berries with just a touch of cranberry for kicks. It’s so pretty.

Warm and inviting, there’s a good bit of finesse and personality here. It takes around an hour for the heat to blow off and once it does it becomes silky and more refined than you’re probably assuming. More berries and earth on the palate with some really nice spice on the finish. A fun surprise of a wine.

Quiñon de Valmira Sierra de Verga Alfaro Rioja Red Blend 2018

This one has a very intriguing aromatic profile. Rhubarb, Incense, cherries, dried strawberries. It is a very light and delicate style of Garnacha. Almost Nebbiolo like without almost any tannin. Interesting stuff. Only around 4000 bottles filled. — 3 months ago

Villa de Corullon Bierzo Mencía 2015

Blend of 97% Mencía and 3% white grapes, deep Ruby red color with aromas of ripe black fruits, pepper spice and oak. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry and plum with cinnamon, cacao, cacao and smoky notes. Fine chewy tannins, medium+ finish, lively acidity, nice mouthfeel, ending with vanilla and earthy chaulky mineral tones, a fine Sipping Wine! Organic! — 4 months ago

Gratallops Priorat Grenache Blend 2021

Much more minerality than other Priorat I've had. Not sure what others on here are drinking, but I don't see this as fruit forward as they did. That said, hiding behind the llicorella you do get cherry vanilla, cocoa, and coconut--all classic Priorat flavors--with tinges of black pepper. Finish is a little weak for this price range, but I still enjoyed this very much. — 22 days ago
