Vall Llach Porrera Vi de vila DOQ Priorat 2015 (Spain) Rated 95WSMore from Vall Llach
Wine Spectator Review
This red is exuberant and structured. Ripe yet focused flavors of raspberry, currant and kirsch mingle with savory herb, espresso and mineral notes, supported by muscular but well-integrated tannins and enough acidity to keep the heady flavors in balance. A statement wine, not for the faint of heart. Carignan and Garnacha. Best from 2020 through 2035.
Wine Tasting Notes
A tribute to a village, its townspeople and its indigenous old-vines, Celler Vall Llach created their Porrera Vi de Vila to be a wine of the highest quality and a homage to the people of Porrera, a village that welcomed the winery with open arms and now defines its spirit. Containing aromas of warm berry pie, marzipan and Mediterranean herbs, this wine is rich and expressive in the mouth, with great structure and silky tannins. The estate recommends opening this wine 30 minutes before drinking and serving it.
77% old-vine Carinena and 23% old-vine Garnacha
