Vall Llach Idus is an elegant and modern wine which surprises with the mineral tones provided by the Cariñena vines, balanced and structured by the inclusion of other varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon... The skilled use of these varieties confers on the wine a profound complexity of aroma and flavor which is both persistent and soft on the palate.
A blend of 40% Cariñena (old vineyards), 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Garnacha, and 10% Syrah
"The 2007 Idus de Vall-Llach was produced from older vines, some of it purchased, with the focus on Carinena. It received nearly the same elevage as the Embruix while spending 14 months in French oak. Purple/black in color, it exhibits a brooding aromatic array of wet stone, licorice, fruitcake, plum, and blackberry. Thick, rich, and full-bodied on the palate, it has layers of fruit, a silky texture, and impeccable balance. Give it 2-3 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2013 to 2027."
The Wine Advocate
"Glass-staining ruby. Powerful, pungent aromas of candied dark berries, cola and vanilla, with woodsmoke and black cardamom accents gaining strength with air. Sappy and expansive, offering youthful blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a jolt of peppery spices. Finishes sweet and long, with lingering mocha and floral qualities."
International Wine Cellar
"Ripe and sweet, with lush, raisiny aromas. The palate is flush, deep and layered, with baked berry, prune, toast and coffee flavors. This is a lot like Vall Llach's signature '07, but it's a bit more restrained and at $50 it's a better deal than the $95 wine."
"Liqueur-like and voluptuous, the weight of this wine's ripeness completely fills the tannic structure provided by the fruit of ancient carinena vines, the basis of this blend. Decadently delicious, it has the bones to support all that massive, robust flavor. A match for oxtail."
