Priorat that’s elegant and downright gulpable. Plush red fruit compote (as another reviewer put it, perfectly) with leather, herbs and just the right amount of sweet oak in the background. Wears its ripeness deftly

Brooding, dark, rich with some pronounced stemmy bitterness.

Rich and plush with an elegant touch that is Palacios doing Priorat for y’all! Ripe, near compot-like fruit profile with wet stones and a well tucked in and integrated oak profile luring in the back. A long interplay between the soft and velvety tannins and the fresh acidity is pulsing through a solid and stimulating finish.

Skulle nog knäckt den ett par år tidigare. Känns lite platt tyvärr jämfört med yngre jag har provat. Fortfarande ett bra och intensivt vin

Still enjoyable but the fruit has faded and tannins are poking out.
Drink up.
