93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Artigas Red checks in as a blend of 65% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 16 months in 25% new French oak. It has a rounded, full-bodied, beautifully layered style as well as a great nose of spiced dark fruits, incense, and violets. It’s a smoking value to drink over the coming 7-8 years. Drink: 2019-2027. (4/3/19)"

92 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "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. 37,936 bottles produced. It was bottled in June and July 2018. Drink: 2019-2022. (Aug 2019)"

92 points James Suckling: "Finally a really impressive, powerful dry white from Priorat, with a complex nose of pineapples, flowers and yeast. Then a wonderful interplay of fruit, creaminess, full body and enough acidity to make this food-friendly. Drink or hold. (8/2/18)"
