2021 Vall Llach Priorat “Embruix”, Catalonia, Spain

Deep cherry red in color with intense aromas and flavors of black plum and dark cherry, clove, and freshly ground black pepper.



Located in the tiny hillside village of Porrera, Celler Vall Llach's "Embruix," meaning 'bewitching' in Catalan, is exactly that - incredible concentration with the capacity to age, but ready to drink now. A blend of old vine Garnacha and Cariñena, as well as younger plantings of Bordeaux varieties, this wine embodies the paradox of Priorat.


Situated in one of the D.O.Q. Priorat’s oldest towns, Porrera, the relatively “young” vines that make up this wine are located on steep slopes comprised entirely of slate, known locally as llicorella. Due to the steep slopes’ inability to retain water and the dry, fiery climate, even the clusters that come from Vall Llach’s youngest vineyards are small and dense, providing the Embruix with its characteristic “bewitching” quality.
