Ripe and fleshy with a undertone of warm earth and resinous herbs. A little simple.

Like the label says, red fruit, chocolate and vanilla notes, maybe a hint of white pepper too. This is a decent wine, but it is really not that dynamic or bold. Subtle, light, pleasant. Not bad for $16.

A "value" Priorat. Deep black cherry, plum, mocha, touch of anise. Great balance with soft gum gripping tannins.

This wine packs a wallop. Nose has plummy, kirsch fruit, cinnamon stick, and cracked rocks. Very full and minerally, with rock-dusty fruit and licorice flavors. Good with a rustic meal. Not elegant by any stretch.

Decent, easy drinker from Priorat. Chocolate covered cherries. HATE the label. Horizontal tasting notes on the front? No me gusta.

Raspberry tinged with iron and mocha. Rich and ripe. Nice effort at this price point.
