Torres’ flagship Cabernet is a polished offering with waves of cassis, plum, olive, mint, smoky herbs and vanilla. There is depth, refined tannins and a long lasting impression. Roast leg of lamb is a sublime pairing with this beauty!
Torres’ top-end Priorat is a structured red, made from 80- to 100-year-old vines. Plum, cherry, raspberry, thyme, cinnamon and chocolate hit the palate like a long-distance runner, with flavour, tannic strength and stamina building over time. It should age well for 15 years. A blend of 95% Carignan and 5% Grenache.
Salmos is one of two Priorats produced by Torres and the one that is made for “early drinking.” It is also noteworthy to mention that is one of the values of the appellation. Hearty, this blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah is redolent with kirsch, plum, raisins, chocolate, vanilla and anise. On the palate, red flowers and scorched earth carry the protracted finale.
Deeply scented blackberry and blackcurrant with mint and fine spice on the nose. Blackberry and bitter cherry flavours are delivered in a thickly textured, full-bodied package, finishing very dry.
Clear deep garnet. Smells of violets and vanilla over black raspberry. On the palate it is rich and warm with nicely oaked black cherry flavours and robust tannins. Will last another year.
A blend of Garnacha, Syrah and Tempranillo. Dense purple in colour with a cedary, earthy nose of black plum; medium to full-bodied, dry, savoury-herbal plum flavour
Aged for 12 months in American oak, this well-made Crianza offers concentrated red and dark fruits with cinnamon, clove spice, evolving velvety tannins, still youthful acidity, a splash of vanilla and a suggestion of milk chocolate, finishing very dry. Has all the right ingredients but will improve with another 2-3 years aging.
