Natalie's Score: 94/100

The grapes for Salmos are planted on slopes of shale called "licorella stone." They undergo extreme differences in temperature between night and day. The wine is aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. A lovely, complex, rich and full-bodied Spanish red wine with satin layers of fleshy ripe black fruit. Terrific balancing acidity for dishes like lamb and roasted meats.

Food pairings: endive and ham in Mornay (white) sauce, chicken a la king, tagliatelle with ham.

Reviews and Ratings

From producer, Miguel Torres, Torres Salmos (2014) is a generous and full-bodied red wine from the Priorat wine region. The grapes for Salmos are planted on slopes of shale called "licorella stone." The name of "Salmos" is in honour of the monks of La Cartuja who first planted the vines in the Priorat region. Although a bit young, the wine is showing wild cherry and floral notes on the nose with brush herb, cherry liqueur on the palate. This wine has been aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Decant for two hours prior to serving or hold in cellar for five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
