The flagship 2007 Vall-Llach is 70% Carinena, 15% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new French oak for 14 months. Much of the Carinena is from estate vines over 100 years of age. It reveals an already complex perfume of fresh herbs, underbrush, slate, incense, and brooding black fruits that soars from the glass. Considerably more structured than its siblings, it has the stuffing to evolve for 8-10 years. Savory, plush, and built for pleasure, it will reward extended cellaring and deliver prime drinking from 2018 to 2035.

Wine maker notes
Idus is the result of a close collaboration between the Vall Llach estate and owners of trossos, or small vineyard blocks, who cultivate old-vine Carinena and Garnacha. These ancient vineyards, located near the towns of Porrera and Torroja, Priorat, produce the essential Priorat character of this wine. The head-pruned, tiny “bonsai” vines yield naturally concentrated grapes that produce an amazingly inky red wine with complex aromas and flavors. Containing notes of ripe forest berries, wet flint, licorice, fig, sweet spice and toasted hazelnuts, this wine has sumptuous density and structure with well-balanced tannins and acidity. Meant to drink now or age for up to 30 years, this wine should be opened a half hour before consuming and served between 55-60ºC.
