Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat 2012


Alvaro Palacios is one of "names" of Spanish wine.  The Camins del Priorat is rather obviously oaky in terms of aromatics, with reminders of plum, vanilla, bitumen and potpourri.  There's quite long length on the palate, supplemented by fruit cake and more vanilla characters.  This is plainly a good to very good wine, and I would be happy to settle on the latter, provided the oak characters are capable of settling.

Rating: Good to Very Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $42, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: Not obvious, Tasted: 2015
