July 3, 2021 - Very good for the price. Will buy more.
January 31, 2021 - still a good drinking wine. clean good after taste.
April 18, 2020 - Muito boa intensidade aromática e de sabor. Vinho redondo, integrado, sem arestas, mas sério.
January 26, 2018 - The nose is a mix of fruity sweetness and savoury complexity. The palate is just as interesting with notes of cranberries on the attack, transitioning to dark cherries then cedar and just a touch of black pudding. The finish is an elegant balance of light acidity and and medium tannins. Beautiful and ready to drink now.
October 10, 2017 - ok
April 28, 2017 - La robe du vin est violacé et voilé, avec un certain dépôt.
En gros, cette bouteille fût similaire à celle bu il y a 1 an.
Un Priorat qui allie grande fraicheur et concentration sur une structure solide et soignée. Excellent pour le prix. Dommage qu'il ait tant augmenté depuis 3 ans (de 23$ à 28$).
December 3, 2016 - Similar to last tasting note.
August 21, 2016 - Red fruits and licorice on the nose. The palate is simple but elegant. Not the most complex bottle, but it has a nice tannic structure balanced by moderate acidity, making it a great wine to pair with food.
April 10, 2016 - Outstanding value wine. Should've bought a case.
March 24, 2016 - It feels like such a privilege to drink wine from Priorat. Even the wines at more affordable prices bring so much quality and distinctiveness, and this excellent, high-value ($26 in Ontario) example from Álvaro Palacios, one of Spain's most famous winemakers, a man who helped put Priorat on the map, is no exception. A blend of mostly Garnacha and Cariñena, with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah as well, it has the famous freshness, the famous acidity, and the famous minerality derived from the famous llicorella terroir, along with characteristic ripe fruit notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, and raspberry backed by savoury notes of earth and spice. It's truly the minerality that stands out, though, and it adds a great deal of complexity in and of itself with graphite, slate, and crushed rock elements. It also has well-integrated tannins, but the acidity, lively bordering on aggressive, needs more time to calm down, and that time would likely push this up a notch or two. Even at this point, though, it's a fantastic entry point into a fantastic, if often inaccessible, region.
