Vino Veritas: Torres ‘Gran Coronas’ Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2004
Torres Gran Coronas Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva
2004 Penedes, Spain
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Tempranillo
Color: Deep reddish purple
Nose: Earthy with oak and pepper notes.
Taste: Not very fruity, though there is a nice cherry note, but featuring plenty of complex spicy/oaky flavor. Hints of tobacco and vanilla.
Like most Cabernet Sauvignons this wine would pair well with virtually any cut of beef you feel like putting next to it. However, I’m thinking of something like a plate of beef chimichangas or almost any lamb dish.
