The 2013 Artigas wants to be an elegant introduction to Priorat with a high content of Garnacha complemented by 25% Cariñena, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah from 10- to 20-year-old vines from three separate plots. It's a ripe red with 15.5% alcohol and a dense palate that fermented in cement vats, with 40% of the Garnacha with full clusters, and it matured in 228-liter oak barrels for one year. It's juicy and fresh, with focused, clean aromas and a palate with abundant, slightly dusty tannins, very Priorat, ending with a roasted finish where the coffee and dark chocolate flavors suggest it might need a little bit of time in bottle. There are 23,457 bottles and 100 magnums produced.
