Torres Gran Coronas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Over 130 years old, Spain's Torres Winery almost single-handedly established the now-famous Penedès wine region. Intense cedar and black plum, plus chocolate, floral and herbal flavours, with ripe tannins.
"Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo are the grapes that bestow their nobility on Gran Coronas, a wine of a deep red hue, with ochre and brick-red touches from its ageing. This arose from the innovative drive of Miguel A. Torres, who planted the French variety of Cabernet Sauvignon in the Penedès at the end of the 1960s and early 1970s, when normal practice was to plant local white varieties. Thanks to this, Gran Coronas has become a benchmark for reserva red wines." - Winery
"Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, oyster shell, cloves, smoke and cigar box. Full-bodied with supple tannins. Round and creamy. Savory, mineral finish. Drink or hold."
