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.

House Priorat

This is a very good wine. It can be drunk on its own or with food. It is very consistent and we have not had a poor bottle yet. Excellent value.

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.

Value

Fantastic value wine. Great allround wine, with or without food.

Agradable, fresco y ligero. Frutas y mineral.

De mayo 2014 a sept 2016 la botella subió 0.45€ (de 9,50 a 9,95€). Incremento razonable. De sept. a dic. 2016 la botella subió 1€ (de 9,95 a 10,95€, un 10%!!!) Es un vino perfecto para moverse por debajo de los 10€, sobre todo si tenemos en cuenta que en otras webs su prcio se mantiene en 9.90€
