The regional red blend 2018 Camins del Priorat was produced with grapes from 101 plots from eight villages in Priorat. It's a blend of 35% Garnacha, 20% Cariñena, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak vats and matured in barrique and oak vats for four to six months. It's nicely textured, happy and fresh, juicy, clean and with no noticeable oak. It has a modern and clean profile. The tannins are soft and round.
Natalie Maclean "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."
