low tannins.
medium body.

mostly raspberry, 🍒 and liquorice 👄

made well but no serious complexity.

Planetes de Nin Partida Les Planetes Vi De La Vila Porrera Priorat 2017

I love this wine and it gets better each year as the vines get older. It’s a 60/40 Grenache - Carignan blend aged in oak for 17 months. Grenache vines are 20 years old. The wine is fresh with lively acidity - Red fruit leads to notes of violets with a chalky minerality underneath. Medium- bodied, long finish. Evolves in the glass. 2017 vintage on Dec 15, 2019 — 8 days ago

Camins del Priorat Grenache Blend 2013

Obviously European on the nose. I could pick this as French in a blind tasting and be wrong. Medium bodied and ready to drink - soft resolved tannins. Savoury with a little barnyard - just the right amount. Punching way above its price of $45. Very good value for a Priorat from Alvaro Palacios. Loved this wine with an aged T Bone and will look for more of it. — 10 days ago

Very nice 👌

La Conreria d'Scala Dei

Les Brugueres Priorat Grenache Blanc 2017

Definitely better on the second day, which is odd for a white. Pale in colour. Quite shy initially but opens up to reveal lots of spice and complexity, wrapped around the melon core of garnatxa blanca. Delicious though they are not giving it away at €18. — 7 days ago

Massipa de Scala Dei Priorat Garnatxa Blanca Xenin 2017

Perfect white. Great balance between sweetness and acids. Perfect for drinking without food but would pair fantastic with fish from BBQ or oven. Even better on day 2! — 12 hours ago

Terra de Cuques Priorat Pedro Ximénez Muscat 2017

Great white wine in a great place. A recent opened restaurante called Al Marge, located in Badalona (close to Barcelona) has an incredible list of wines, including some of the jewels coming from Priorat, like the wines produced by Terroir al Limit. — 14 days ago

Artai Gratallops Vi de Villa Grenache Blend 2011

This screams dried figs. Not like fig newtons - actual well made dried figs. Damn, that’s a mouth watering scent. In the mouth though it’s dark cherries, licorice, and a subtly soft spice. Spend some time getting to know this one. It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship. — 2 hours ago
