It's only wine but I like it

The 2011 vintage, picked up at Premier Wines in Buffalo for $14.95. Very ripe, veering on over-ripeness with notes of dark fruit, prunes and hints of spice. Quite mouth-filling and the oak is in fine balance. Long finish. Good value for Priorat (or anywhere for that matter). As an added bonus, the LCBO will refund me 20 cents for a bottle bought elsewhere! Or is it the Beer Store. Tasted July 2014.
