Price: $95

Rating: 16/20

Varietals: 70 percent Cariñena, 15 percent Cabernet Sauvignon & 15 percent Merlot

Tasting Notes: In 1992, Catalan singer Lluís Llach and his childhood friend Enric Costa founded Celler Vall Llach. The winery’s flagship bottling, Vall Llach is made from a combination of old vine Cariñena (Carignane) and newer plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A big, powerful wine, the 2007 Vall Llach boasts heady blackberry, plum and mineral aromas. In the mouth, it reveals rich, concentrated fruit flavors with a touch of sweetness, silky tannins and a lengthy finish.


Food Pairings: Pork loin, venison, dry-aged steaks, roast vegetables

  1. Very, very good stuff. Albert’s entire range of wines has really come of age over the years.
