    The still unbottled sample of the Garnacha and Cariñena blend 2016 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes has vibrant acidity in a warm year when ripening stopped as the vines blocked and stopped producing sugar and maintained the acidity. The grapes were small because the year had also been very dry. It's juicy and with good ripeness and some dusty tannins, reminiscent of the dusty roads among the vineyards of Priorat along with that decomposed slate.

    Supple and polished, this fresh red offers bright cherry and plum flavors, with notes of black olive and mountain herb. Light, firm tannins and gentle but bright acidity provide definition. Graceful. Drink now through 2026.
