Classic Priorat intense dark fruit, smoky minerality and spiciness are on full display here. Youthfully chewy and densely packed, the 2018 opens up quickly with air, showing fine definition and gentle tannic grip. From the region’s most famed producer, this wine delivers superb value. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2021)

Fruit bomb with jammy notes on initial opening - disliked it at this point. After a day and a half the fruit gives way to wet stone and a very faint hint of oak. A fantastic QpR in the making don’t drink this before 2022.

Despite the granny label, it's pleasant and has a high alcohol content. Turns out it's not your grandma's Grenache, it's your spinster Aunt Mabel's "special" juice

Tasted 2018. Intense dark fruit, very smooth, very spicy with a hint of smoke. Good structure, body and balance. Nice finish. Very good value for the price.

Interesante aroma a especias: pimienta y frutas. Sabor equilibrado, taninos elegantes y moderados, cuerpo medio. Agradable al paladar.

Dark fruits, herbs, pepper, violets with a oaky smooth finish, mild tannings and moderate acidity... Gorgeous color, full body, intense flavors and beautiful aroma... If you ever wonder what a mediterranean sunset in the mountains taste like, this must be a serious contender...

Big juicy red. Lots of fruit but well balanced.
