Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Bright cherry colour with violet rims. A rich expression of fresh red fruit, with spicy nuances and a nice mineral touch. Very tasty and enjoyable with good balance. Well-integrated woody flavours and a fruity finish that encourages another sip.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 is the first vintage of the Camins, which joins the rather prestigious company of the three other wines in Alvaro's Priorat range, topped off by the now iconic Ermita. Camins is certainly the most economically priced, its price-tag representing outstanding value for a wine that has been sourced from the steep slate terraces of Gratallops and surrounding villages. The wine is made from 50% Samsó, 40% Garnacha and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Ageing takes place for 8 months in barrels and wooden vats. The result is typically glossy, velvety even, a Pinot Noir on heat if you like. read more...And if you, quite reasonably, don't like that description, what about black cherry, a hint of wood smoke, iris, raspberry and gentle spice. Ripe and generous, this will work well with richer sauce-based dishes and most red meats. (hide)
