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 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.
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! Food matches: 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..
