Vall Llach Vall Llach Doq Priorat Spain Wa 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 96+ 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. Wine Tasting Notes 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 flavor profile of black minerals, ripe forest fruit and Mediterranean herbs.
