Familia Torres Salmos, DOQ Priorat — 2016 – Jancis Robinson – 16.5+ Points
The nose is a little less emphatic than I was expecting. Though the tannins and bright liquorice fruit are certainly there in abundance. This should not disappoint a newcomer to the DO even if it’s a bit Priorat Lite. I’d suggest decanting it to let it flourish aromatically. The palate manages to be both warm and very stony. (The wine offers the distinct and not remotely unattractive prospect of licking warm and grainy stones.) By no means a silly price for a wine that has the potential to develop in bottle for quite a while.
