Review

Cal Pla is a red Priorat. Even if they were to change the label of this wine, you wouldn't be deceived. With a pleasant nose and smooth texture, it's easy to drink and extremely helpful in refuting the unfounded myth that wines from this denomination are hard, difficult and expensive. Not true at all.

Cal Pla is a black fruit Priorat — ripe, black and quite jammy depending upon the vintage, but fresh. It also exudes a classic, traditional air, since it has a touch of the olden in a good sense of the word, without becoming rustic. It's accessible and very drinkable. Black fruit and notes of India ink —the Porrera Cariñenas are seemingly dominant— crowned off with a subtle minerality. It's mature, direct, serious, meaty and intense on the palate. The Priorat definitely doesn't deceive.

Value

Fantastic value wine. Great allround wine, with or without food.

Cal Pla

This is such a constant wine, year after year. Rich and full bodied palate, berry fruits and Liquorice, noted tannins, delicious now but will reward ageing.

Excelente RCP

Con extracto, volumen, mucha fruta negra, regaliz y y algo de mineralidad. De los mejores vinos con relación calidad precio del Priorat.

Es un vino tinto maduro

Aromas bien definidos de confitura de frambuesas, frutos negros, casis y notas minerales. En boca se combinan los sabores de las frutas negras bien maduras.

Très bon Priorat

Nous trouvons ce vin exceptionnel pour ce prix. C’est un de nos vins préférés et très bon vin pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas encore les Priorats.
