Natalie's Score: 95/100

A savoury, full-bodied Spanish red wine made from the noble Cabernet Sauvignon grape. This wine is a blockbuster with so much dark fruit flavour, complexity and depth. It's worth twice the price, easily. The 2010 vintage was a strong one and it shows in this glass. Although this is a Bordeaux blend, it's contained in a traditional Burgundian sloped shoulder bottle. It's been produced by the Torres family for more than three decades now. Decant 1-2 hours. Pair with the good life, or filet mignon, or both.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled tenderloin, roast rack of lamb, Porterhouse Veal chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

From the sunny shores of Spain’s Penedés region comes this amazing Cab. This is Torres’ most prestigious red, well known to connoisseurs around the world. Vinified with 100% Cabernet sauvignon grapes from the selected small vineyard. Tons of dark fruit, plenty of weight with great depth and finesse. Excellent acidity with pronounced aromas and flavours of ripe black cherries and cassis. Closes in a lovely, long, lingering cedar-toned finish. Fantastic companion to grilled meats and dark chocolate. This red in made for aging. If able to wait, lay down for the next decade. Tasted September 2017. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com
This is the 40th release of Torres Mas La Plana (2010) mostly Cabernet Sauvignon red wine. Lots of blackberry fruit, tobacco leaf and cedar wood on the palate. Tannins are velvety and the wine is well balanced with great acidity. Drink now and for the next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews
