Winemaker Notes

Camins del Priorat offers full-bodied with rich, deeply concentrated black fruit flavors. Dark spices on the finish with some anise. Great for hearty meat dishes.

Blend: 40% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Sometimes I simply ponder about the range of red wines that can be found in the marketplace. Often predictable like a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a Classified Bordeaux from the Medoc, or a Nebbiolo from Piedmont, one can pretty much expect focused flavors from those regions' primary grape variety. Then there are blends—GSMs, "kitchen sink reds," and cuvees that combine Rhone and Bordeaux varieties, as well as so many other possible variations. In the case of Priorat, one does not know exactly which grapes are in play here. The excellent 2016 Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat—a combination of Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah—is another mixed bag. This wine exhibits a delicious mix of nuances (black fruits, sweet spices, savory notes) that simply make it a delicious red wine. Live in the moment and enjoy a full flavored red wine that is beautifully balanced. (Tasted: June 7, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Wine & Spirits
For this entry-point to the red wines of Priorat, Alvaro Palacios relies on garnacha and cariñena (70 percent of the blend), adding cabernet and syrah as well. The result is a delicious and fresh juice, so lively and crisp that it makes you want to ice down the bottle and pour it with charcuterie.

A firm and silky red with lots of bright blue fruits and violet flower character. Medium body. Vivid finish. Excellent entry level Priorat. Drink now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The entry-level red blend 2016 Camins del Priorat is the first wine to be bottled—only a few months after the harvest—and is sold early, as market demand causes it to sell out pretty quickly. It's a blend of 35% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah and 10% Merlot aged for a few months in oak barriques and casks. It's a very pleasant and accessible wine from the portfolio, but it's less Priorat than any of the other wines, with some international character, very nicely crafted. We are talking about one of the biggest production wines from the whole of Priorat! 260,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2017.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A polished texture carries black olive, tea and loamy earth flavors in this focused red, with black cherry and red plum flavors emerging on the finish. Graceful, with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink now through 2024.

Alvaro Palacios Winery Image
Recently named the 2015 "Man of the Year" by Decanter Magazine , Alvaro Palacios is an important figure in the wine industry. This prestigious title is awarded to people who have made an exceptional contribution to the universe of wine.

The son of the owners of Rioja's Palacios Remondo, Alvaro Palacios spent his early 20s working and studying winemaking outside of Spain. His experience abroad - particularly in Bordeaux - instilled in him a deep passion for great wines and led him to return to Spain. With the ambition to make wines that could be world-class. To achieve this dream, Palacios was drawn to the historic hillsides of slate soil and its traditional grape varieties of Garnacha and Carinena. Now widely considered to be among the more important new Spanish wineries in a generation, Alvaro Palacios embodies the spirit of "The New Spain."
