(From 2011 Vintage) “Embruix", or "bewitching" in Catalan, is made with 15-20 year old vines grown in rocky soil in this abundantly warm region. It is soft, plummy, and spicy with notes of dark chocolate, raspberry pie, earth and tar. It is rich and "manly" but very well-balanced.
(From 2009 Vintage) 2009 was a very good, interesting vintage. Immediately agreeable, but with a repertoire of powerful gustatory and olfactory refinements, this is a wine that satisfies both the connaisseur and the casual consumer.
