Dense, close-grained aromas of great subtlety and complexity: a sense of stone and savoury depths as well as sweet yet austere black fruits. Deep, dark, vivid and profound yet provocative flavours which, as the aromas suggested, tread the fine line between sweetness and austerity (thanks to the Carignan-dominated blend). There is great complexity and finesse here. 2018-2025.

This really captures the freshness of the carignan grape with its bright cherry character. Medium-to full-bodied with spice from the grenache and excellent vitality on the long, crisp finish. Drink or hold.

It’s a bigger, riper, sexier wine than the Ferrer Bobet cuvée and boasts a deep purple color as well as rocking notes of black plums, black licorice, ground pepper, violets, and new leather. Ripe and full-bodied, with moderate acidity and terrific balance, it’s a seamless Priorat to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years or so.

Heady, mineral- and spice-accented black and blue fruit and floral scents pick up hints of vanilla and licorice with air. Densely packed cherry, cassis and floral pastille flavors unfold slowly, supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows impressive energy and solid dark fruit thrust on the impressively long finish, which is framed by slowly building tannins. -- Josh Raynolds

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2019
The old-vine cuvée 2015 Vinyes Velles is a blend of 67% Cariñena and 33% Garnacha from 70+-year-old vines on the slopes of the village of Porrera, and it aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. This is the only wine...   The old-vine cuvée 2015 Vinyes Velles is a blend of 67% Cariñena and 33% Garnacha from 70+-year-old vines on the slopes of the village of Porrera, and it aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. This is the only wine from this tasting where I found very ripe aromas and some development, showing faintly oxidative. The palate feels quite polished, like the fruit is fading faster than the tannins. - Luis Gutiérrez
