"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. The 2017 will be bottled in March 2018, but there will be a lot less wine, maybe 180,000 bottles. Drink: 2018-2022. 90 points

2015 was a high-yielding vintage in Spain in general and in Priorat in particular. The wines here have little color and feel very ethereal. 2016 is clearly more concentrated, and at the same time, the wines show vibrant acidity and more freshness."
