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

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.

Purple with clear red rim. Star bright and very clear. Light body. Strawberry, raspberry and ripe cherry notes. Great acidity and sweet tannins. Lots of red berry fruit flavors. Although it's high alcohol level is not so perceptible. Medium finish.

Garnacha blend with 20 pct Cabernet. Bright, fruity, balanced acidity and ready to drink despite young age.

This is a young and fruity Priorat rich and vibrant, it went very well with tapas . The wine has a deep purple, lots of red and black fruits, a touch of sweet spices and flowers, medium to full body, fruity, round, pleasant acidity, delicious finish. Well made and surprisingly ready do drink. My score 86, drink to 2020.

Strong alcohol taste, full bodied, smooth at first, bitter finish.

Bright magenta color, it is vivid. The nose bears loads of dark and red fruit. The feel is riveting: fruit, acidity, almost full bodied, high tannings, and a sensory finish with hints of dried almonds.

It’s Alvaro Palacios’ entry level Priorat with a twenty-five dollar price tag; a steal if you can find it. Drink young though, before it’s vibrancy is weekend by time.
