Wine Advocate 88 points - So the wines are naturally concentrated but with good acidity, a lot fresher than you?d expect from such a warm, dry year. I did taste one wine from that vintage, the 2012 Camins del Priorat a regional wine from younger vines, from a dry (one-third the average rain, the driest for many years), warm vintage, the only wine that contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot complementing the 40% Garnacha and 25% Carinena. It aged for one year in barrels and is an accessible wine, with some leafy raspberry notes and aromas of ripe plums, cherries, licorice, graphite and faint cinnamon. It has finesse and some complexity. The palate is medium-bodied, with opulent tannins, modern and very well-crafted, ending with some earthy notes. An approachable wine for new drinkers, great for restaurants. Drink now-2017. (Feb 2014)
