Tasting Notes and Scores

The 2016 Finca l'Argatà is now pure Garnacha from 40- to 60-year-old vines on sandy limestone soils. It fermented with full clusters and natural yeasts and matured in oak barrels for 15 to 16 months. It made me jump from my seat. With its light color and subtle and perfumed nose, it made me think of an elegant, ripe, perfumed version of a Château Rayas, nuanced, with some beef blood and meat notes. There's some complexity, but it's in need of a little more time in bottle (it was only bottled three weeks before I tasted it) and will develop even more nuances. The palate is medium-bodied but compact, with a solid structure, freshness and concentration, saline, ripe but with lightness, rustic and pretty. This is a superb Mediterranean Garnacha, a true revelation. 14,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2018. LG
