Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat 2016

Priorato, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainHow much do I like this wine? A lot. The blend is 35 percent garnacha, 25 percent cariñena, 15 percent cabernet sauvignon, 15 percent syrah and 10 percent merlot. Camins del Priorat presents a kaleidoscope of flavours from savoury, spicy dark cherries to cassis, cloves and a touch of roasted tomato, root vegetables and licorice but never out of balance - that quality that makes you want to finish the bottle. Beef pork, lamb or turkey pies, it all works here along with older, hard cheeses. The mostly restored ‘Camins’ of Priorat are the pathways that connect the villages up and down the hillsides, from valley floor to mountain top.Tasted: 22 March 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 36.99 private wine shops QC 28.45 SAQ MB 28.15 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online Producer: Alvaro PalaciosDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
