Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) "The flagship cuvee, the 2001 Vall Llach, was fashioned from 65-year old Carignan vines (50%), Merlot (35%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). It spent 17 months in new French oak prior to bottling. This deep ruby/purple-colored offering exhibits great intensity, a beautifully textured midpalate, and a 45 second finish. Pure notes of minerals, raspberries, flowers and black fruits cascade over the palate in this multidimensional 2001. Drink over the next 12 years."
-Wine Advocate

The vines, which the winery owns on the outskirts of Porrera, are almost centuries old and produce very low quantities - giving this wine its surprisingly sudective character.

Deep and well structured, this magnificent concentration manifests itself in a rich blend of powerful and original aromas and tastes which combine finesse and harmony. A blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah.
