Wino wybitne, ale osobiście wolę 2006
Rich blackberry fruit, dusty dried flowers and a bit of a medicinal hint to the nose. The palate showed sour raspberry, still slightly tannic with a cranberry, chocolaty finish.

Cherry and raspberry liqueur notes dominate the nose, while the real power and structure of this wine comes out on the palate.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2006 Vall-Llach, Celler Vall Llach 750ml
The nose is heavily perfumed, leaping out of the glass with aromas of ripe dark red and blue fruits, sweet plum, spicebox, cedar, fresh tobacco, graphite, and a hint of cinnamon. Full bodied, the Embruix' is very fruit forward and coats all aspects... Cory Gowan. A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2005 Vall-Llach, Celler Embruix 750ml

A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2005 Vall-Llach, Celler Vall Llach 750ml
The 2004 Vall Llach is the flagship wine of the estate. Produced from estate old-vine fruit consisting of 65% Cariñena, 20% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine was aged for 16 months in new French oak. Purple-colored, the nose offers scents of pain grille, fresh herbs, mineral, spice box, and blackberry liqueur. On the palate the wine is backward and unyielding. Full-bodied (15.5% alcohol), and packed, there is plenty of ripe tannins and excellent balance but purchasers of this wine will require patience. The 2004 Vall Llach will need a minimum of a decade of cellaring to blossom. It should easily last for several decades but will it ever be fun to drink? If I were young and a gambler, I'd lay away a handful of bottles and roll the dice later in life.
A solid red, with plum, dark chocolate and mineral notes. The muscular tannins overshadow the fruit, but there's enough acidity for freshness and the fruit emerges on the finish. Cariñena, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Syrah. Best after 2008.
Deep and dark, this is an excellent kitchen-sink blend (it includes Carignan, Merlot, Cabernet, Garnacha and Syrah). For those who like expressive, fruity, no-holds-barred wines, you're gonna swoon for this. The palate is super lush and full of dark cherry, tobacco, herbs and spice, while the finish is mile-long. Outwardly impressive in a modern style.
