Silky-textured tannins surround the black cherry, balsamic, mocha and pureed raspberry flavors of this concentrated red. A fresh acidity keeps this focused, with mountain herb, spice and licorice notes gaining traction on the finish.

Glass-staining violet. A pungent, mineral-accented bouquet evokes fresh cherry, boysenberry and licorice, along with a suave floral overtone and a hint of smokiness. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense red and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors and an emerging exotic spice note. The impressively long, mineral- and floral-tinged finish is shaped by finegrained tannins that slowly fade away.

With the arrival of Mas de la Rosa in the Familia Torres Priorat wines, Perpetual could seem like a poor relation. However, it stands up well to the challenge. Bright floral aroma with red cherries. Sunburst of red fruits in the mouth, refreshed by a lift of citrus. Memorably brisk, vivid palate. Polished, well rounded, exuberant. Very confident.

I tasted two vintages of the old-vine red from Priorat, from two very different years, and in both they have introduced some changes. The 2017 Perpetual comes from a warm, dry and low-yielding year when they went for a less-extractive vinification (shorter macerations), especially in the case of the Cariñena, which represents 79% of the blend here, with the remaining 21% being Garnacha. The grapes are sourced from slopes of old vines from local growers in the villages of Porrera, Torroja, Lloar, Molar and Bellmunt, mixing warmer and cooler places...
