    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 65% Cariñena, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. 15% Syrah and 5% Merlot.

    In the rolling hills of Porrera, within the winemaking region of Priorat, grow the ancient vines of Celler Vall Llach. Dating back over 100 years, many of their vines are pre-phylloxera and provide Vall Llach's flagship wine with its characteristic elegant structure and individual character. The proprietary blend is soft and sultry, possessing a unique blend of mineral, rich dark fruit and Mediterranean herb flavors. The estate recommends opening this wine one hour before serving to permit it to fully blossom in the glass.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The flagship 2005 Vall-Llach is composed of 65% Carinena, 15% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot aged for 12 months in new French oak. Many of the Carinena vines for this cuvee are pre-phylloxera. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a splendid aromatic array including pain grille, slate, mushroom, espresso, garrigue, blueberry, and black currant. Opulent, full-bodied, and rich, this pedal to the metal Priorat possesses 8-10 years of aging potential. The winery claims it can be cellared for up to 50 years; that could well prove true although many of us will not be around to find out or our delay of gratification will have long given out.

    The Wine Advocate

    For the second vintage in a row, Vall Llach’s signature red blend is out on its own. The bouquet is round and deep, with alluring cola, mint and blackberry aromas. The palate is alive but still quite dark, with huge black plum and blackberry flavors. Super long on the finish, with a subtle streak of vanilla and coconut. Delicious but also deft. 450 cases produced.
