Gran Coronas Reserva

Torres Gran Coronas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Alister Maclean scored this wine: 88/100

Has a good lively but not unpleasant lighter finish. I feel its worth around $12 so overpriced at close to $19

An ok red, I would not call it full bodied, but it would be good with cheeses, lively enough but I've tasted better reds for less money!

This is a fresh lively red that opens up with each mouthful, has a delightful lingering after taste that echoes hints of blackberry.
