Torres Mas La Plana 2011

Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainThis iconic Spanish wine has been in the spotlight since 1979 Paris judgement when the 1970 Mas La Plana beat out Bordeaux for the Cab Crown. From deep, limestone-rich soils in Alt Penedès, Catalunya, this spent 18 months in French oak (70 percent new). The wood is firm and gritty around the sides still, housing savoury wild cherry, leather, tobacco, and frisky acidity. The finish is pinched tight, and warm, salted, and ready for wild lamb.Tasted: 29 November 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 47.00 Vintages BC 65.00 specialty listing US 50.00 retail NF 52.00 MB 55.00 AB 62.00 fine wine shops QC 56.00 NS 57.00 Producer: Familia TorresDistributors: Dandurand
