2016 Vi de Costar Arbossar
Usually $170 - Special Offer $155
The Cariñena 2016 Arbossar shows very different from the Dits del Terra. This comes from their oldest vineyard, which delivers very low yields, in some parts no more than 300 or 400 grams per plant. 2016 was a warm year, but not as warm as 2017. The idea is to use less and less oak and, in some wines, use only concrete. This is a very elegant Cariñena, with floral notes, clean berries, fine minerality, some spices and a very tasty finish. Simply superb.
Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate -96 points

 

2016 Vi d'Altura Les Tosses
Usually $500 - Special Offer $480
This might be the most elegant Cariñena out there. It comes from a very old, steep vineyard in the village of Torroja on very dark slate soils. It matured in an oak foudre, quite old, and there is a nice note of graphite and wet slate, red and black cherries and a spice touch. It has great freshness, good acidity and is fluid and relaxed, powerful yet elegant and harmonious.
Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate -98 points

 

2016 Vi d'Altura Les Manyes
(Only 1 bottle available)
Usually $500 - Special Offer $480
The 2016 Les Manyes is aromatic with tantalizing aromas of wild berries and herbs, flowers, a touch of forest floor and something salty. This has a lighter color and comes from a healthier vineyard that gives slightly higher yields (it was not in good shape); the vineyard is in a high-altitude place where they escape the heat of the Priorat. It's beautifully textured, with refined, chalky tannins and a medium to full-bodied palate, with no room for sweetness but with the volume of ripe Garnacha, pungent flavors and a very long finish. I just couldn't get myself to spit the wine! This is as far removed from a sweet wine as possible: This is a salty wine, a wine for food, a wine for gastronomy. The nose kept changing in the glass, developing new nuances with time—aromatic, intoxicating and attractive, with a kind of magnetism that made me go back to the glass over and over again. I could smell this for hours... I don't think Priorat gets much better than this! Bravo!
Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate -100 points
