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.

Oh Priorat. I love you dearly, but if you starting putting out wines that are doused in fake oak like a cheap perfume, then we may have to talk about things. :(
