Winemaker's Notes

30% Garnacha, 60% Carinena, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The evolving seriousness of Terrasses eventually left room for a new wine, as Alvaro had never wanted to be known solely for expensive "trophy"" wines, and with Camins, he found the opportunity to create something special. Drawing on his wealth of vineyard sources, Alvaro is aiming to produce a wine that is affordably priced, but which also stays true to his vision of Priorat—powerful but elegant, approachable but restrained.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Camins del Priorat is a blend of 60% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah aged for 3-4 months in barrique followed by tank and cask aging. Deep crimson-colored, it offers up a captivating nose of mineral, lavender, underbrush, and black cherry. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has excellent concentration, plenty of sweet fruit, a forward personality, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It is a sensational value and a great introduction to the DO of Priorat. "
91 Points

"Bright ruby. Complex, highly aromatic nose melds zesty red berries, minerals, flowers and Asian spices; smells a lot like a sexy pinot noir. Perfumed and sweet in the mouth, with a silky texture and sweet raspberry flavor framed by supple tannins. Gentle acidity gives energy to the wine and adds bite to the tangy, focused finish. This is the first vintage for this bottling."
