PERAJ HA'ABIB, FLOR DE PRIMAVERA KOSHER 2016:  95p
Just beginning to mature, this has a very complex nose of spice, licorice and hot stones, as well as great black fruit. Concentration, warmth and drive in this rich red that has a very long, polished finish. Kosher wine. Drink or hold.

CABRIDA 2016: 94p
Joyful nose of fresh raspberries, summer flowers and a hint of clove. Concentrated ripe fruit, beautifully crafted tannins that sit so neatly within this wide frame. Great balance of sweet and dry, warm and cool elements. Delicious now, but with very good aging potential.

COSTERS DEL GRAVET 2015: 94p
A stunning nose with the whole spectrum of black fruit, from cassis through cherry to plum, but also delicate herbal notes. A rich and ripe red with polished tannins carrying the long finish. On the cusp of greatness. A blend of grenache, carignan and cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.

MAS PICOSA DE FLOR EN FLOR 2017: 93p
Very dark nose with tons of black cherries and plums plus a hint of bitter chocolate, but a freshness that pulls you into the powerful and quite concentrated palate, where the generous, soft tannins are beautifully integrated. Long, powdery finish. Delicious now, but should hold through at least 2024.

LA NIT DE LES GARNATXES SLATE/LLICORELLA 2016: 93p
Plenty of flowers and wild herbs in the most sophisticated of this terroir series from an excellent cooperative winery. This medium-to full-bodied grenache has elegantly dry tannins that push the crisp finish along at a brisk clip.

LA NIT DE LES GARNATXES CLAY/ARGILA 2016: 92p
I love the crushed wild-berry aromas with some floral notes, but also the deep, earthy quality. Then comes the great velvety texture on the ripe, but well-proportioned palate, the well-crafted dry tannins making the finish lively. Drink or hold.

LA NIT DE LES GARNATXES SAND/PANAL 2016: 92p
This smells of the blackest forest berries with just a hint of anise. A dark, well structured grenache with dry, but rather fine tannins and a long, bright finish. Drink or hold.

LA NIT DE LES GARNATXES LIMESTONE/CALISSA 2016: 92p
Very charming and floral, medium-bodied grenache with a gracefulness and delicacy that carries through the long finish. Drink or hold.

MAS COLLET SELECCIÓ 2016: 91p
Bold, black fruit, balanced by generous, supple tannins, making this an easy red to enjoy. But it also has some real depth with notes of licorice and earth adding some complexity to the nose and the long finish. Drink now or hold.

CELLER CAPÇANES MONTSANT PERAJ PETITA KOSHER 2017: 90p
Lots of blackberries, some flowers and licorice on the nose. In spite of the generous ripeness, it's quite dry and slightly sappy on the palate. Good, but not amazing depth. A very good food-wine. Drink now or hold.
