Barranc Dels Comellars 2012, organic Priorat

Barranc Dels Comellars 2012 from Priorat, Spain is an organic red wine. Alcohol 13.5% is surprisingly lower than what you get in Priorat usually (14.5-15%) .
It has been aged for 3 months in barriques, so you can get first hints of woodiness and light touches of sweet spice, but not more than that.

Let’s try it first.Barranc Dels Comellars Priorat 2012
Straightaway (and I know it is not great to jump into conclusions before the description) I can say that it’s what I call organic wine – it is slightly mature, bursting with flavours, complexity and minerality.
Black fruit dominate, but give way to more refreshing red fruit flavours, herbs, and hints of oak. I think oak is amazing – it gives depth, a bit of vanilla hints, but not going over to a sweet side – it is more of cedar and earthy notes.

Truly amazing and highly recommended.

I rate this organic Priorat wine 28/35. Would you?
