Vall Llach - Vall Llach 2009

Dark ruby with minor garnet rim. Spiced dark cherry notes with fig jam, rum, gingerbread and Christmas spice, great deal of cracked black pepper, and light toasted notes as well as a wispy hint of vanilla. Spicy on the palate as well, very dark fruit, drifts much more towards prune with fine yet still tight tannins. Needs more time to evolve yet.
