I usually detest Priorat/Montsant wines, as they impress me as being tough and charmless. This is the exact opposite: aromatic, exuberant, complex! #alvaropalacios #priorat #garnacha

Lifted aromatics if violets, array of red fruits with a whisper of some dark plums, dried quandong, tarragon and red liquorice. No new oak in sight. Tannins are medium, acid moderate to low. Finish a bit short. Eh, not bad.

Deep, powerful, great value in Priorato. Perfect for lamb.

Camins Del Priorat - Alvaro Palacios - DOC Priorat -40% Garnacha, 30% Samso, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah- full body and well balanced-
Aromas/Flavors: Blackberries and spices - Long finish - I had it with a London Broil last night and it was a perfect pairing!

Strong anise and unintegrated oak flavors. Definitely too young.

Delicious priorat, rich and full-bodied, lots of ripe black fruit, but not over the top like many more expensive priorats. No detectable new oak, good acidity, and a great price.

Wonderfully balanced, fruity, and spicy. Better after breathing. A great introduction to Priorat wine.
