The red 2016 Artigas, a blend of 60% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, feels a lot fresher and has better integrated oak than previous years. They used some (one-third) full clusters of Garnacha and Cariñena to ferment it with selected and indigenous yeasts, and it matured for 16 months in French oak barrels. It's very fruit-driven, juicy and fluid, with a mixture of berries, spices and Mediterranean herbs, aromatic, open and attractive. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins and integrated acidity. Drinkable and pleasant.
