Another wine from Alavaro Palacios, one of the wineries credited (rightly so) with the rejuvenation of Priorat. This is a blend of 55% Garnacha, 44% Cariñena (Carignan), with a "pinch" (1%) White Grapes. Purple in color with ruby swirls, opaque and bright. The nose has nice black cherry fruit with dust and spices. The black cherry fruit comes thru to the palate with an underlying char and slate/minerals. Nice texture. Good finish. This wine is young and may improve a bit but either way should drink well for another ten to twelve years. This will work with a wide range of foods from a steak to roasted veggies.
Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
