Sourced from estate vines primarily 15- to 25-years-old, Vall Llach's Embruix (pronounced "Embroosh"), means "bewitching" in Catalan and the name, along with the symbol of a full moon on the wine's label, is testament to the winery's interest in biodynamic winemaking. Immediately agreeable, but with a powerful repertoire of rich aromas, flavors and textures, this is a wine that satisfies both the connoisseur and casual consumer alike. With notes of sweet almond, blackberry jam, fennel seed and toasted oak found both in the nose and on the palate, this wine is meant to consume now or can age for up to 15-20 years. The estate suggests serving this wine between 58-60ºF. Only 1,124 9L cases were produced.
