WINE PAIRING OF THE WEEK: Torres Mas La Plana Cabernet Sauvignon & Lamb Tenderloin
From the sunny shores of Spain’s Penedés region comes this amazing Cab. This is Torres’ most prestigious red, well known to connoisseurs around the world. Vinified with 100% cabernet sauvignon grapes from the selected small vineyard. Tons of dark fruit, plenty of weight with great depth and finesse. Excellent acidity with pronounced aromas and flavours of ripe black cherries and cassis. Closes in a lovely, long, lingering cedar-toned finish. Fantastic companion to grilled meats and dark chocolate. This red in made for aging. If able to wait, lay down for the next decade. Score: 94/100. Tasted September 2017. VINTAGES#: 129676, $ 59.95.
