The 2009 Vinyes Velles is a blend of two-thirds Carinena and one-third Garnacha. It is bestowed with a glorious, floral bouquet with very pure scents of cassis, blueberry and violets, all with pixelated delineation, almost Margaux-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. It is taut on the entry, quite linear and then fans out nicely with sappy dark berry, cassis and allspice. This entrancing Priorat is very well-balanced, long and persistent towards the finish, with a structure that suggests it will benefit from 2-3 years in bottle. Drink 2014-2025. (NM)
(70% carinena and 30% garnacha, from vines reportedly planted almost 80 years ago): Inky ruby. Cassis, blackberry, violet, dark chocolate and minerals on the nose. Rich but lithe, delivering compellingly sweet flavors of dark berries and cola lifted by a floral component. Silky and lush on the finish, with bright acidity extending the black and blue fruit flavors. (JR)
This firm red shows good intensity, with focused flavors of cherry, licorice, fresh herbs and smoke mingling on the graceful palate and deepening on the long, juicy finish. (TM)
