This for me shows the true character and style of #Priorat #Priorato a blend of #carignane #cariñena and #garnacha with that pure concentrated #mediterranean style and an excellent maturing in oak.

Gift from a friend. Deep inky purple. Good red fruit aroma and flavors as soon as I opened the bottle. Good acidity and tannins on finish, some bitterness as well. Expect wine to open up more with time - promising - red fruit, mint, nice varietal character

With Jambalaya and cornbread biscuits. Amazing. Bought at the winery on our trip to Spain. This is a cornbread by the fire wine for sure.

Single vineyard Garnacha was tasting mighty fine, needed about 2 hours to really open up and show its stuff.

This is 45% Carinena, 40% Garnacha 15% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Big, rich, extracted. Big fruit and a hint of burn on the finish.

Priorat wine from 100 % garnacha.
Silky, lush, warm, cherries, winter spice.
