Torres Penedes Cabernet Sauvignon/Gran Coronas 2006
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Torres Penedes Cabernet Sauvignon/Gran Coronas 2006 Wine Review
A rich and deeply layered red with gorgeous notes of black plum, blackberry and mocha. Some dark pepper and spices with a coffee-infused finish. Part of the Vintages Essentials Collection. Superb! 4.6/5 Cabernet Sauvignon/Gran Coronas food pairings: The perfect accompaniment to starters (cured meats, vegetable rice dishes and paellas), as well as the finest meat and games recipes, without forgetting cheeses. Serve at 17ºC. Properly cellared it will improve over the next 10 years..

More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|Travis Oke rated this wine as 4.6/5 with the following review:|
Deep dark colour, prominent tobacco nose, delicious fruits with aged (softened) tannins - but not too soft. Upgraded from 89 to 91 after it cellared for another year and then opened up beautifully after decanting.
Great price for a big Spanish wine
|Emily reviewed this wine as follows:|
Same vineyard as esmarelda
|Balanced aroma of spices (black pepper) and jam (cherries), complemented by notes of oak ageing (toasted bread, toffee). Broad and complex palate with a structure of silky tannins prolonged towards nuances of jam and coffee.|
