Wine Description

(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.

Winemaker's Notes

Sourced primarily from 10- to 15-year-old estate vines, Vall Llach’s Embruix (pronounced “Embroosh”), means “bewitching” in Catalan and the name, along with the picture of a full moon on the wine’s label, are testament to the winery’s interest in biodynamic winemaking. Dark cherry-red in color with a violet rim, the wine has aromas of fresh earth and toasted oak laced with ripe black fruit. In the mouth the wine is ample and intense, with notes of ripe berries, freshly ground cacao and black licorice that linger on the palate. Meant to consume now or age for 20-25 years, this wine should be served between 58-60ºF.

    Robert Parker: 91/100 Punkten und bezeichnet ihn als einen der „Best Values“ des Priorat: „... In einem undurchsichtigen, dichten Purpur offeriert er ein verführerisches Bukett von Unterholz, feuchter Erde, Mineralien, Weihrauch, schwarzer Johannisbeere und Schwarzkirschen. Er ist ein Wein mit vollem Körper, dichter Struktur und wohlschmeckend mit vielschichtiger, würziger Frucht und einem langen, puren Finale...“
