What was that nose? Grassy? A bit acidic but well balanced with a little time in the glass. One minute, this would be easy drinking and the next sip seemed off balance. Thinking it might be the blend? Not quite sure what I think of this one...

Still too young to be fully developed, although promising.

Beautiful bouquet on the nose. Rich, ripe red berry, lavnder, violets, and strong strawberry aromas. It's ripe, fresh and pretty on the palate with flavors of cherry, pomegranate accented by spice and vanilla. Great bright acid and just enough tannin. Really nice. Focused and fresh. A great PVR on this wine! 4/21/12

Strikes me as a beautiful bottle, I'm surprised by the low ratings. Big, bold, and brambly, this Priorat manages to be easy drinking while still having a high tannic quality. Truly an iron fist in a velvet glove, this will be an ideal pairing for hearty steaks and stews.

So the wines are naturally concentrated but with good acidity, a lot fresher than you’d expect from such a warm, dry year. I did taste one wine from that vintage, the 2012 Camins del Priorat a regional wine from younger vines, from a dry (one-third the average rain, the driest for many years), warm vintage, the only wine that contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot complementing the 40% Garnacha and 25% Carinena. It aged for one year in barrels and is an accessible wine, with some leafy raspberry notes and aromas of ripe plums, cherries, licorice, graphite and faint cinnamon. It has finesse and some complexity. The palate is medium-bodied, with opulent tannins, modern and very well-crafted, ending with some earthy notes. An approachable wine for new drinkers, great for restaurants. Drink now–2017.

Inky ruby. Aromas of blackberry, cola and spicy oak. Sweet and intense in the mouth, offering weighty dark berry flavors complicated by Asian spices. The fleshy, broad finish features smooth tannins and appealingly sweet black and blue fruit qualities.

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. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2009 Camins del Priorat is more perfumed than the 2008 as well as more structured.
