    Description

    Alvaro Palacios Priorat 1996
    L'Ermita
    lscl
    Jeroboam (1)
    "The 1996 L'Ermita appears to be another blockbuster effort from Alvaro Palacios. The color is a saturated purple. The expressive nose boasts aromas of pain grille, roasted coffee, chocolate-covered, jammy cherry candy, minerals, and new oak. Full-bodied, dense, and thick, with an unctuous texture, lower acidity, and higher alcohol than the 1995 and 1994, this is a meaty, chewy, masculine wine with a flamboyant personality, in addition to a monster finish. It is super-intense, but exceptionally well-balanced, especially in view of its proportions." (95-96pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #116, April 1998)
