Pick up any wine atlas, encyclopaedia or reference from the 80's and Priorat will hardly get a mention. Now it is one of only two appellations in Spain to have DOC status, the highest designation (the other is Rioja). What a magnificent introduction to Priorat this is. Garnacha dominant with some International varieties, year after year this is one of the best put together wines of the vintage. Stunning. It is made by Spain's greatest living winemaker Alvaro Palacios and it is right in the pocket for drinking. STSWine

Alvaro’s wines have built a formidable reputation with prices to match, fortunately, he pays as much attention to quality at the lower end of his range: a bottle bearing his name must meet his exacting standards. ROBERT PARKER

oung and fruit-driven with some herbal hints from the French grapes, which were picked early, intermixed with licorice and fennel. 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. More concentrated version of 2016 & 2014, PARKER 91 POINTS

A layered and very dense Priorat with crushed-raspberry and slate character, as well as black tea. Full body. Ripe yet tight tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Drink now or hold. SUCKLING 94 POINTS
