Product Description
Details

The varietal Cabernet Sauvignon Mas La Plana is an iconic Spanish red wine produced by Bodegas Torres.

The legend was born when, in the 1979 wine contest "Les Olympiades du Vin", organized by the "Gault-Millau" magazine, the 1970 vintage of this red wine from Penedès, which then bore the name "Torres Gran Coronas Etiqueta Negra", defeated in a blind tasting wines such as Château Latour 1970, Château Pichon-Lalande 1964, and the monumental Château La Mission Haut-Brion 1961.

Produced from four different plots belonging to the DO Penedès, the grapes were picked up by hand and macerated for 20 days. Then they were fermented for a short period of time -approximately one week- in stainless steel tanks. After that, Mas La Plana 2015 was aged for 18 months in mostly new French oak barrels. It was bottled in September 2017.

Needless to say, this varietal Cabernet Sauvignon will improve considerably over the next years.

Appearance

The red wine Mas La Plana has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

Nuanced and detailed, this Cabernet Sauvignon from Penedès effortlessly combines some deep mineral notes, delicate spicy tips and dash of blackcurrants and blackberries. There are flecks of tobacco and fine leather, and some gentle earthy overtones. 

Palate

This red wine of Bodegas Torres is crisp, nuanced and detailed. It shows some first-class black fruit, with a gentle wooden note and a clear terroir imprint. Acidity is excellent, with some smooth tannins and a long finish with some spicy and mineral remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Once again, Mas Plana 2015 lives up to its name. A magnificent wine.
