Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat
Alvaro Palacios may be the one person most responsible for bringing quality winemaking back to Priorat. His l’Ermita is widely acknowledged as one of the top wines in Spain and indicative of the quality that can come from Garnacha and Carignan grown in the brown schist of the region. The entry-level Camins del Priorat adds a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah to round out the dark fruits and mineral-driven fuller-bodied wine. Pick this up and get a preview of greatness.
