I love #garnacha and this is a splendid one. Slightly overpriced, but doesn’t disappoint #priorato #priorat #spain

Beautiful wine - very young, sleeping giant right now. The style here is bold, powerful, and rustic rather than elegant and finessed. Underlying notes of dark fruit, currants, and spice blend with streaks of slate and mineral. The secondary flavors are all there, but right now, the 15% ABV dominates a bit. Give this baby 10 - 12 years of cellar time, and it will be a world class Priorat. The score will be 3 to 4 points higher once the complex flavors emerge and become dominant. 2015 vintage on Nov 2, 2018

Wow this is drinking fantastically especially if you like fruit forward wine.
Chocolate nose, some cinnamon, sweet turkish delight, blue berries, tannins still there. Great wine.

17+/20 (92+/100) Вино с ароматом слив, яблок, ежевики, ванили и нотой молочных сливок. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, сухими, шероховатыми танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе. Очень молодо. #dfwe2018
