2005 Vall Llach Idus Priorat

SKU #1367798 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark For the second vintage in a row, Vall Llach's signature red blend is out on its own. The bouquet is round and deep, with alluring cola, mint and blackberry aromas. The palate is alive but still quite dark, with huge black plum and blackberry flavors. Super long on the finish, with a subtle streak of vanilla and coconut. Delicious but also deft. 450 cases produced. *Editor's Choice* (MS) Inner quote mark (8/2008)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Idus is composed of 42% Carinena, 20% Merlot, 15% Garnacha, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Syrah and spent 16 months in seasoned French oak. Dark garnet-colored, it offers up a complex perfume of wood smoke, tobacco, mineral, wild blueberry, black cherry, and black currant. This leads to a full-bodied, opulent, full-flavored wine with lots of extraction, sweet, ripe fruit, well-concealed tannins, and at least 6-8 years of aging potential. This lengthy, gratifying effort should drink well through 2030. (JM) Inner quote mark (2/2008)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Based on the oldest cariñena vines Vall Llach owns in the town of Porrera, this is a pure and exuberant expression of Priorat. It starts with a mineral, slate character that quickly opens up to a core of blackberry and black cherry flavors. The palate is filled with fruit and strong, masculine tannins. Inner quote mark (2/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This supple red shows cherry, plum, tobacco and light earth flavors, with firm tannins and a smoky finish. A bit light, but balanced. (TM) Inner quote mark (6/2008)
