|Description:||Winemaker Notes\r\n\r\n\r\nSourced from estate-owned 7- to 25-years-old vines, Vall Llach\u2019s Embruix (pronounced Embroosh), means \u201cbewitching\u201d in Catalan and the name, along with the symbol of a full moon on the wine\u2019s label, is testament to the winery\u2019s interesting biodynamic winemaking. Deep cherry red in color with a garnet rim, this wine contains soft aromas of black plumbs, cherry liqueur, freshly milled spice (including clove and black pepper), intertwined with earthy mineral notes. Intense and concentrated for an entry-level Priorat, the Embruix de Vall Llach has well-integrated acidity, round tannins and great structure, assuring this wine will age well for many years.\r\nBlend: 27% Garnacha, 26% Merlot, 21% Syrah, 18%\u00a0Cari\u00f1ena, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon\r\nWine Spectator 91 Points\r\nAbout Vall de Llach\r\nFrom its founding in the early 1990s, by famed Spanish singer Llu\u00eds Llach and notary Enric Costa, Vall Llach winemaking has been governed by a commitment to rigor and quality. The winery lies in the tiny village of Porerra, in southern Catalonia, in the highly-acclaimed D.o.q. Priorat. Here, the magnificent century-old vineyard estates of Vall Llach are home to 60- to 90-year-old Cari\u00f1ena and Garnacha vines.\r\nOld vines naturally produce low yields, and Vall Llach reduces yields even further through careful vineyard management for densely concentrated wines. Vineyards climb steep slate hillsides, receiving optimum sun exposure and beneficial water deprivation, further concentrating the fruit. Newer plantings of Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah add complexity to the old-vine character, and the resulting wines - Vall Llach, Idus, and Embruix - have received high critical acclaim.|
