Torres Grand Coronas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Spain 2013

I’m so glad the Vancouver International Wine Festival turned the spotlight on Spain and Portugal this year. The two featured countries are delivering some fantastic wine at a great price. This Torres Cab is a prime example. After decanting the wine for about an hour I could already get a hint of what’s to come from the aroma. This is a bright, sunny glass of Spain. Flavours of blackberries and liquorice with some smoke and spice to add to the taste. This is a lush, balanced Cab that’s great with charcuterie or rack of lamb. We need more Espana in my opinion!
