Review

Cal Pla is a red Priorat. Even if they were to change the label of this wine, you wouldn't be deceived. With a pleasant nose and smooth texture, it's easy to drink and extremely helpful in refuting the unfounded myth that wines from this denomination are hard, difficult and expensive. Not true at all.

Cal Pla is a black fruit Priorat — ripe, black and quite jammy depending upon the vintage, but fresh. It also exudes a classic, traditional air, since it has a touch of the olden in a good sense of the word, without becoming rustic. It's accessible and very drinkable. Black fruit and notes of India ink —the Porrera Cariñenas are seemingly dominant— crowned off with a subtle minerality. It's mature, direct, serious, meaty and intense on the palate. The Priorat definitely doesn't deceive.

Cal Pla

This is such a constant wine, year after year. Rich and full bodied palate, berry fruits and Liquorice, noted tannins, delicious now but will reward ageing.

Geheimtipp!

Dieser Wein bietet schlichtweg ein geniales Preis-Genuss-Verhältnis! Erinnert mich an die guten alten Bordeaux Weine (vor allem der Jahrgang 2016). Mein Tipp: kaufen solange er zu diesem Preis erhältlich ist. Das wird sich sicher bald ändern.

Vino joven con personaldidad

No deja indiferente por su intensidad y sabor en boca. Es un vino para acompañar con carne o con sabores fuertes

Little ‘sister’ to one of my favourite Priorats

Everyday drinking red from a great vineyard. I recommend it to all who would like an ‘entry level’ Priorat. Enjoy.

Uno de los pilares de mi cava

Hace años que lo descubrí y desde entonces no ha faltado una remanente de este vino en mi cava. Con el tiempo han mejorado su único defecto: hace ya años que no encuentro ninguna botella picada. ¡¡Para los amantes de los vinos con personalidad!!
