15.5% kind of put me off, but after tasting this and then going back for glass after glass you hardly notice it.

2012 vintage on 24.12.18 from the Magnum.
Nice silky priorat. Drinking sooooo smoothly. Licorice, dark red fruit. Leather. Tannins still there. Drink or hold but I do not see it getting better. Good spot!

Fruit and spices dominate this. The alcohol gives a burning kick. Nice wine drinking smooth.

Aging perfectly. Tar and ripe red fruit nose. Plumbs too. Lush and light eventhough the high alcohol percentage. Tanins smoothned out nicely. Good effort.

Med-tannic. High alcohol content isn't too noticeable with the strong spicy and peppery start. Thoroughly enjoyed it

Smells like nail polish, but opens out nicely. Very interesting taste profile. Hard to describe

This was really enjoyable. The high alcohol and medium-plus tannins was just what the meal needed for balance. A good amount of peppery/spicy taste was perhaps a bit much, but it went down smoothly. Very drinkable. Would have again.
