Rotllán Torra Autor Crianza 2010

Priorat D.O.C.A., Spain
1755 days ago

WineArtist scored this wine: 92/100

I was surprised to see this well price Priorat in my local LCBO. Unfortunately, as this region has become very "in" for the "insider" wine sect, too often the prices do not often represent good value. Having said that, this baby is a superb value at $18.95. If you plan to imbibe soon, I implore you to decant or give it a one-hour breather to loosen up its tightness. Certainly serve robust red meats with this beast. Rotllan is da man/ woman!!!
