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)

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

another win from my favorite Priorat. Dark red plum, medium tannins, not sweet in the least.
