Torres 2006 Reserva Real Red (Penedès)
A beauty of a wine, with black plum, berry, cocoa, sandalwood and moss on the nose. The palate is huge but perfectly balanced, with flavors of tobacco, blackberry and cassis. The blend is straight from Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Merlot), but everything else screams Spain. Pure, long, smooth and easy…
Torres 2007 Reserva Real Red (Penedès)
An outstanding Bordeaux-style blend from Spain. Ripe and lusty aromas of deep berry fruits, vanilla and balsam shavings are excellent. Weighty and saturated on the palate, with elevated cherry, toast, coffee and chocolate flavors. Toes the line between sweet and dry; drink now through 2020.
Torres 2006 Mas La Plana Cabernet Sauvignon (Penedès)
Mocha, toasty smoke and pure berry aromas ring the bell, and the palate follows with fine balance and flavors of vanilla-infused raspberry, plum and cassis. A little rich and creamy now but still structured and ageable for another 10 years. A seriously good Spanish Cabernet with world-class character. Best from…
Torres 2006 Perpetual Red (Priorat)
Very ripe, rich and rewarding. Perpetual is Torres’ top wine from the Priorat, and it’s a winner in 2006; it has polish, power and life. The nose is dark and alluring, while the palate hits comfortably with bold black cherry, cured meat, herb and tobacco flavors. Long and honest on the finish, with thrust. Good now…
Torres 2008 Salmos Perpetual Red (Priorat)
On the money right from the start, where deep aromas of black fruits, minerality and fresh herbs mingle nicely. The palate is creamy and smooth, with rich, almost syrupy berry, cream, coffee and toffee flavors. Oaked up but not “oaky,” with caramel and chocolate on the smooth finish. Drink now through 2015.
Torres 2010 Perpetual Red (Priorat)
This is stylish and smooth up front, with tobacco, graphite, cedar and herbal notes to the bouquet. The mouthfeel is a bit jammy and chewy, with chocolate, licorice, mocha and blackberry flavors. A mild, creamy finish chugs along with coffee notes and ripe black-fruit flavors. Drink now through 2017.
Torres 2007 Grans Muralles Red (Penedès)
This five-grape blend is harmonious, with aromas of sweet spice, ripe berry, cherry, licorice and mineral. It’s racy, deep and powerful, with dark berry, black plum and oaky, spicy flavors. It’s long, elegant and potent on the finish. Drink through 2018.
Torres 2007 Mas La Plana Cabernet Sauvignon (Penedès)
An opening salvo of coffee, tobacco and pure berry fruit give this Cabernet a fine lift-off. The palate exhibits freshness and full-bodied power, while the flavors run toward deep black fruits, tobacco, herbs, vanilla and cocoa. Long and rich as well on the finish. Best to set this aside for at least four years…
