Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat 2019

JAMES SUCKLING 94 POINTS!  
PREMIUM SPANISH GARNACHA BLEND FROM A HIGHLY ACCLAIMED PRODUCER. WALL OF FLAVOUR DELIVERED WITH POWER AND DRIVE.   

"Gorgeous, bright fruit with raspberries, black cherries and lavender with some schist. It’s medium-bodied with very polished and integrated tannins that go on and on." James Suckling

"This wine showcases the power and concentration of 2019, an extraordinarily warm and dry year, but the wine has great finesse. There are more balsamic aromas from the Bordeaux varieties, which incredibly didn't dehydrate that year: the leaves took a long time to turn yellow. There are notes of licorice and something balsamic. This is juicy and chewy, powerful, with muscle, pungent and intense but with great balance and very clean. This is the most modern and international of their wines, with a showy profile. A triumph over the conditions of the vintage." - Robert Parker 

"40% Garnacha, 30% Cinsault, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah. Camins is the winery's softer Priorat where the Garnacha and Cariñena base is supported by Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot. A supple red wine that has good energy, with vibrant acidity fueling the bright berry and cherry fruit. Fresh herb and vanilla accents add interest. Graceful and alluring.“ - Spanish Acquisition
