Tasty now; score reflects current drinking, not potential. So much better with a lighter hand in the cellar: strawberry, red currants, roses, anise

This is a well made wine, but I have my complaints. I don't get all the high scores. It barely reminds me of Priorat. It tastes waaayyy too much like high end Mencia in it's lack of density and power that one associates with Priorat. Very smoky minerality, plum, blueberry, floral, dried herb. It's complex, but not what I like from Priorat.

2015. #priorat #primeurs 95% #garnacha 4% #cariñena 1% white variety. From the village of Gratallops. 22,000 bottles. I really enjoyed this new vintage. Dark chocolate and smoked ham nose with lily floral touch. Excellent balance.

A perfect pairing wine. Good for steak and seafood. A little fruity, medium body, with a slightly spicy finish.

17+/20 (92+/100) Тонкий и элегантный аромат с нотами спелых ягод вишни и жимолости, а также пионов. Довольно тельное с умеренной кислотностью. Танины молодые, интенсивные, впрочем, мелкозернистые по текстуре. Очень молодо.

Not what I was expecting from a Priorat. Very mild with subtle fruit and minimal nose. Not a forward flavor wine like other Priorat wines I have tried.

Definite on the lighter side for a Priorat but very enjoyable and drinkable now
