ratings pedigree (past vintages):
"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."
alcohol by volume:
"Rich and bold, this expressive red delivers black cherry, blackberry, espresso, mineral and mountain herb flavors that are intense and complex, yet focused and balanced. The firm tannins are well-integrated, while the acidity is bright and refreshing. Drink now through 2021. 283 cases imported. "
"Earthy and deep as midnight, with spice, floral notes, herbal aromas, tobacco and mocha. The palate is super rich, almost to the point of syrup, with blackberry, brown sugar and coffee flavors. Finishes chewy, ripe and deep, with no harshness or tannic grind. Drink now through 2013."
"Opaque purple. Powerful, intensely perfumed scents of dark berry preserves, cherry pit, cola, licorice and smoky Indian spices. Deeply concentrated but with unlikely vivacity too, offering sweet blackberry and boysenberry flavors underscored by tangy minerality. Finishes with strong mineral cut and lingering notes of sweet dark berries and star anise."
