Review:

Álvaro Palacios will never fail to surprise us. We may like his style and appreciate his way of creating wine, but what can't be denied either is his brilliance and his ability to adapt to contemporary times. A good example is Camins del Priorat, an affordable wine in an accessible style but with the class and distinction which we have grown to expect from Álvaro. The sort of wine we might term introductory, which enables us to become familiar with not only the firm's philosophy, but also the essence of the Priorat, without attaining the complexity of the grand classics or this winery's other offerings.

As the label itself seems to reflect, Camins del Priorat is a wine for those who love the naturally beautiful and delightfully fragrant. A wine which is presented as the bodega's entry level, but which shows its own definite character. Originating from vineyards in various municipalities (Gratallops, Porrera, Torroja, La Vilella Alta and La Vilella Baixa, Bellmunt, El Molar, El Lloar and Poboleda), at different altitudes and orientations, and from vines of varying ages (between 10 and 40 years old), Camins del Priorat is made primarily from indigenous varieties (50% Garnacha and 15% Cariñena with the addition of some Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot), offering a complex and balanced whole, a very fruit-forward wine that has the marked minerality typical of the Priorat terroir.

In the glass, most notable are its aromas of ripe fruit peel, juicy fruit, watermelon... Accompanying them are the floral notes, especially roses and carnations, which remind us of its similarity to Pétalos del Bierzo or even to Franziskaner-type beers in that floral touch, and discernible notes of banana. On the palate, it appears accessible, with a velvety texture and plenty of fruitiness, of blackberries and blackcurrants. Balanced, with good body, length and some sumptuous yet also silky tannins. A jovial and pleasant wine, modern and very well made... What more could you ask for from a winery's standard?
