“Opaque ruby. Cherry pit, cassis and licorice are joined by smoky minerals, a sexy floral nuance builds in the glass. The sweet, penetrating and lively palate offers sappy dark fruit, spicecake and echoing smokiness. Supple, late-arriving tannins firm the long sweet finish, with cherry and floral notes lingering with strong persistence. This wine is showing nicely right now, with less-overt structure than many other wines from this excellent, ageworthy vintage.”

“This ripe Carignan-Garnacha from a warm year smells of prune, vanilla, cola and violet petals. The palate is open and wide, with raw tannins and a sensation of resiny oak. Flavors of black plum, red and black currants, toast and barrel spice finish toasty, chocolaty and much like coffee, with tannic grab and just enough acidity to keep things lively. Drink through 2024.”

“Aromas of berry, cherry and earthy schist are what the Priorat is known for. This wine feels tight and pure, with firm tannins and a gritty personality. Toasty flavors of mocha, black cherry, raspberry and cassis are generous, while the finish is fresh, tight, balanced and indicates that midterm aging will only help; drink 2017–2022.”

“ Deep red. The explosively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, potpourri and graphite, joined by a sexy Asian spice nuance. Silky, seamless and concentrated, offering intense, alluringly sweet raspberry and mulberry flavors and an enlivening jolt of blood orange. Delivers a compelling blend of power and finesse, finishing sweet, energetic and extremely long, with supple tannins that are quickly absorbed by the wine’s intense, sappy fruit. I was strongly reminded of high-end, Grenache-dominated wines from the southern Rhône here, including, yes, Rayas.”
