2011 Camins del Priorat, Alvaro Palacios

Camins del Priorat, Alvaro Palacios
Alvaro’s Canins is made half from local variety Samsó (a synonym for Carinena), then 40% Garnacha and 10% shared between Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The wine has classic Priorat weight, with velvety raspberry fruit and hints of spice and vanillin; the naturally ripe exuberance inherent in this region has been tamed by this relatively mild vintage and the result is pleasingly approachable in youth.

Camins del Priorat, Alvaro Palacios
This wine maintains the Palacios reputation of quality. The nose packs a punch, full, as it is, of deep dark fruit, bacon and liquorice. Plump and sumptuous, this red cries out to be enjoyed with some well-aged beef or lamb. A lot of wine for the price.
Decanter, December 2012.

Camins del Priorat, Alvaro Palacios
Bright purple. Aromas and flavors of ripe red berries, cola and spicecake, with a deeper note of licorice emerging with air. Lush and seamless, with very good finishing breadth and spicy persistence. Shows plenty of upfront appeal but this wine has the concentration and balance to reward at least mid-term aging.
