1999 Vall Llach Priorat
"Savage and rustic, but will ravish romantics with its bold style. Earthy, mineral and tobacco flavors mingle with ripe plum and cassis fruit and toasty oak over muscular tannins. A big red with distinctive, indigenous character. Carinena, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. tasted twice, with consistent notes. Best from 2004 through 2020." - T.M.
