Wine Style: Red Still Wine

Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varietal: 40% Cariñena, 20% Merlot, 15% Garnacha, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah

Idus is the result of a close collaboration between the Vall Llach estate and owners of trossos, or small vineyard blocks, who cultivate old-vine Cariñena and Garnacha. These ancient vineyards, located near the towns of Porrera and Torroja, Priorat, produce the essential Priorat character of this wine. The head-pruned, tiny "bonsai" vines yield naturally concentrated fruit that produce a wine ruby red in color with aromas of black licorice, marzipan, nutmeg and allspice. On the palate Idus is unctuous and mineral-rich with a very long finish. Meant to drink now or age for up to 30 years, this wine should be opened a half hour before consuming and served between 55-60ºC.
