From one of the top estates in the region, the 2015 Artigas is a brilliant Priorat based on 60% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 16 months in in 25% new French oak. It offers a full-bodied, ripe, yet elegant and weightless style as well as perfumed notes of black raspberries, blackberries, cracked black pepper, and earth. It has terrific intensity, yet again, stays elegant and nuanced. It’s going to keep for a decade or more and is a seriously good bottle of wine.
The red 2015 Artigas is a blend of 60% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from 15-year-old vineyards, with 90% from their estate vineyards on old, decomposed slate soils, and some purchased from La Vilella Alta and Poboleda. They used some full clusters with selected and indigenous yeasts for the fermentation in concrete vats, then aged the wine 16 months in French oak barrels. It's quite fruit-driven, ripe and concentrated, showing the character of the year. The palate is juicy, with abundant, fine tannins and a soft texture. An accessible, textbook 2015. (LG)
Quite a serious and structured wine with very ripe blackberry and cherry notes, but also some freshness. Attractive interplay of fruit and tannin that persists through the long finish. Drink or hold.
