Natalie's Score: 93/100

An exuberant red wine with excellent balance and wild raspberry aromas on the nose. This full-bodied D.O.C.A. wine is a blend of 60% carignan, 30% grenache, and 10% cabernet sauvignon grapes. This wine is well worth twice the price or more: winemaker Alvaro Palacios offers staggeringly great value at every price point, even the highest ones. A flagship wine for the Priorat region. Long finish with some smoke and dark fruit.

Food pairings: beef.
