Tasting Notes:

Black cherry, cocoa, mountain herb and loamy earth flavors mingle in this firm red. The tannins are a bit chewy now, but citrusy acidity keeps this lively. Expressive, with good depth. Drink now through 2026. 500 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

I also previewed the 2016 Finca Dofí, which has vibrant acidity and more freshness than the 2015. It's a wine that really stands out among the 2016s—explosive and long, with concentration and elegance. This could very well become the finest Dofí to date. They expect to fill some 24,400 bottles.

Tasting Notes:

A deep and complex Priorat red, with intense blueberry and pomegranate character, but also with a certain lightness of touch. This has great, plush tannins, lively acidity for this vintage and a long, complex finish. Better from 2019 with serious aging potential.
