Sourced from estate-owned 7- to 25-years-old vines, Vall Llach’s Embruix (pronounced Embroosh), means “bewitching” in Catalan and the name, along with the symbol of a full moon on the wine’s label, is testament to the winery’s 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.
“This red is dense yet plush, with blackberry and espresso flavors, accented by licorice, wild herb and mineral notes. Well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity keep this focused. Harmonious, in a savory style. Garnacha, Merlot, Cariñena, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.” – Wine Spectator
