Torres Reserva Real 2017

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. Wild cherry, wild blackberry, dark blossoms, thorns and tobacco flood the fuller palate, with ample stony minerality, and wrapped with firm yet pliable leathery tannins which take this to a warming finish. There's a great freshness and structure here, making this bigger red drinking well now (ideally with roast lamb and/or root veg) but with some time ahead in cellar.Tasted: 11 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
