Reviews of purchase Torres, "Cabriana", Terra Alta DO, 2015
Wine of deep dark red color with purple highlights.
The wine shows a generous, well-balanced palate with a silky texture, dense, well-structured tannins and a long finish.
Wine seduces rich, sensual aroma, notes of cherry woven and gooseberries, supplemented nuances of green coffee, leather, vanilla and licorice.
The wine goes well with any meat dishes - from steak grilled to gourmet game, sausage, paella, vegetables and rice dishes, pancakes with meat, roast lamb, as well as at the end of the meal - with cheese.
