Torres Gran Coronas Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2010 (Spain) - Wine Review



With the snowy and relatively cold weather we're having right now, it's always nice to open up a bottle of red wine, preferably from some place warm, such as is this Cab from Spain. I opened this at our annual building pot luck holiday party. It is a VINTAGES Essential product and always available in the VINTAGES section at the LCBO.

TORRES GRAN CORONAS CABERNET SAUVIGNON RESERVA 2010 - DO Penedès, Spain (#036483) (D) - $19.95

Wine Review of 2010 Torres Gran Coronas Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva from DO Penedès, Spain
Tasting Note:
Cherry and fresh cedar aromas from the cork. Savoury nicotine, smoky and earthy nose, followed by herbal and blackberry aromas of medium+ intensity. Palate is medium-bodied with lively acids. Oak spice, red & black cherry, herbal flavour profile. Medium+ level tannins and a long, warm, oak-spiced and bitter chocolate finish. Spice calmed down to a more pleasing level with air. Score: 87 pts
