Natalie's Score: 91/100

This full-bodied Spanish red wine offers rich, deeply concentrated black fruit flavours. Dark spices on the finish with some anise. Great for hearty meat dishes. Winemaker Alvaro Palacios is one of Spain’s superstar vintners who also produces the cult wine L’Ermita. The grapes for this wine are mostly sourced from young vines in the same vineyards that create his second wine, Les Terrasses, which is made only from old vines. Try this with prime rib.

Food pairings: hearty meat dishes, pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This Spanish wine is full-bodied and brooding. Plenty of ripe dark fruit giving deep purple colour in the glass. Cassis, plum, black raspberry, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg,anise, leather,violets,garrigue, earthy complete this lovely complex wine. Tannins are still young and acidity is medium+. Enjoy over the next 5 years. Fun fact: Priorat is one of only two wine regions in Spain to hold the highest qualification for wine DOCa. The other? Rioja.
Tasted: November 8, 2014
A generously flavoured and weighty Spanish red wine with dark red fruit aromas and some smoke. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
