Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Attractive blackberry, cherry, and spice notes with subtle, underlying spice and cigar box aromas. Dense and velvetty on the palate, with fresh acidity, moderate concentration and firm, grippy tannins framing the finish. By no means a blockbuster of power, depth or complexity but offers lovely balance, and at a 20$ retail, represents super value.
Alister Maclean rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Has a good lively but not unpleasant lighter finish. I feel its worth around $12 so overpriced at close to $19
Stephan Abraitis rated this wine as 90/100

Torres Gran Coronas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Pened├Ęs, Spain: The grapes for this lusciously ripe Spanish Cabernet Sauvignon grow on vines planted on the belvedere on the Mas la Palana estate.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
