Camins del Priorat 2018
Este priorat se caracteriza por una excelente carga frutal, especialmente de fruta roja, por su buena acidez, frescura y punto goloso. Un tinto ideal para iniciarse en el Priorat y en el trabajo de Álvaro Palacios de un modo asequible con la garantía de saber que se trata de uno de los grandes protagonistas de la enología española.

Opinión de los críticos
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.
The regional red blend 2018 Camins del Priorat was produced with grapes from 101 plots from eight villages in Priorat and wants to represent the overall character of the zone. It's a blend of 35% Garnacha, 20% Cariñena, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak vats and matured in barrique and oak vats for four to six months. It's young 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. It's like a more concentrated version of 2016 and 2014, both cool years. Easy to drink and very pleasant. 236,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez.
