If one word could define the 2007 it would be maturity. Comprised of old vines - almost one hundred years old, with very low yields - that Celler Vall Llach owns on Porrera's hillsides give this wine a character that seduces and surprises.
Depth and structure are the outstanding attributes of this wine, its magnificent concentration manifests itself in a rich tapestry of potent and original aromas and flavors that do not eschew its subtlety and harmony.
Blend: 70% Cariñena, 15% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
The flagship 2007 Vall-Llach is 70% Carinena, 15% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new French oak for 14 months. Much of the Carinena is from estate vines over 100 years of age. It reveals an already complex perfume of fresh herbs, underbrush, slate, incense, and brooding black fruits that soars from the glass. Considerably more structured than its siblings, it has the stuffing to evolve for 8-10 years. Savory, plush, and built for pleasure, it will reward extended cellaring and deliver prime drinking from 2018 to 2035.
This wine pushes the envelope on concentration and ripeness. It’s full of prune, raisin and licorice on the nose, but also a lot of weight. It’s quite jammy and soft by Priorat standards, as intense blackberry and molten fudge flavors take over. Chewy, warm and ready to drink.
