Concentrated yet lively dark berry and candied violet flavors are braced by a core of minerality that lends sharp delineation and lift. Drink it now with a bit of aeration. Alvaro Palacios’ Priorats are some of Spain’s greatest wines. His entry-level bottling consistently over-delivers. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2019)

Very nice blend, full bodied and good sutle fruit.

Lovely #priorat - plush bramble fruit nose backed by vanilla, fruit-forward character with less acidity, soft spice and a nice trailing finish. Paired beautifully with duck confit with cherry sauce at a nice tapas restaurant.

Memorial Day weekend at Seabrook, WA. Showing great. Dark blackberry & firm tannins. Rich, yet approachable. Juicy freshness accents the dark berries. Love this stuff.

Bone dry. Thick legs. high in alcohol and minerals. Wet Mediterranean rocks, low acidity but not negligible.
