    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sourced primarily from 10 to 15 year-old estate vines, the Embruix (pronounced "Embroosh") de Vall Llach is Catalan for "bewitching." True to its name, the wine has an enchanting ruby-red color and captivating aromas of fresh blueberries, dark minerals, ripe plums and mulling spices. On the palate the wine is surprisingly complex and full-bodied, with soft tannins and a hint of sweet fennel expressed in the finish. Meant to consume now or age for 20-25 years, this wine should be served between 58-60ºF.

    30% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Celler Vall-Llach and the wine's importer have wisely decreased the price of the entry-level 2007 Embruix de Vall-Llach to the point that it is one of Priorat's best values. Made from the estate's younger vines, it is a blend of 30% Garnacha, 30% Carinena, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Merlot and Syrah. Fifty percent of the wine was barrel-fermented and all of it was aged for 16 months in 225 and 300-liter seasoned French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up an enticing bouquet of underbrush, damp earth, mineral, incense, black currant and black cherry. This is followed by a full-bodied, dense, savory wine with layers of spicy fruit and a lengthy, pure finish. It can be enjoyed now but will benefit from 1-2 years of additional cellaring.

    The Wine Advocate

    Chunky, fruity and softer than many Priorat wines. There's raisin, blackberry and prune on the nose, which is followed by a grippy, round palate with sweet blackberry, raisin and chocolate flavors. Fleshy and easy on the finish, with coconut and warmth. Drink now through 2014.
