Torres Reserva Real 2016

Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainReserva Real was first produced in 1995 following the visit of Juan Carlos I King of Spain to the winery. This limited production blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and cabernet franc comes from the slate soiled 4 hectare parcel of Les Arnes, from their Santa Margarida d'Agulladolç estate in Penedès. This spent 18 months in new French oak barrels. Pure dark cherry, wild cassis, tobacco leaf is imbued with dusky spices and wrapped with firm, wood-led tannins. Savoury and somewhat strict throughout, this needs still some time in bottle, or pairing with roast lamb now.Tasted: 09 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
