The 2006 follows the trend for this wine to softer and fruitier than it used to be. It is quite approachable now...

Gran Coronas is one of those 'hit or miss' wines in our cellar; sometimes it works beautifully and other times, I'm not quite as thrilled about it. It's a food wine though so I don't recommend that you sip this one on its own. Instead, pair it with a rich red meat dish and expect dark fruit, leather, chocolate and a touch of smoke surrounded by normally, very smooth tannins. (northof9finewine.com, Feb 2011)

This is a good cab at a good price. Tannins are smooth and fruit flavours are intense but not overpowering. Well balanced.

Any Torres wine is a good option to buy and try. This one is a Reserva - aged 15 months in oak - and is a dark deep colour with a tobacco nose. Pretty tannic - you may want to grill meat with it.

Nice wine with black fruit on the nose but a little to much heat. Nice black olives and dark chocolate on the palate but a little out of balance because of the noted heat. Nice finish. Tasted Nov 2013.
