Miguel Torres S.a. Penedès Atrium 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Latin name of this wine evokes a typical Mediterranean home: a house entrance porch in the style of Roman temples. The name of the grape variety Merlot comes from the Latin word (merulus) for the blackbirds that fly over these vines, searching for the sweet taste of the ripe grapes. Wine and Food This wine is the ideal accompaniment to sausages and all types of meats: veal, ox and especially wild duck. It is also worth trying with fish prepared in mariniere sauces. Serve at 15-16º C. Tasting Notes Attractive dark cherry colour. Generous and intense varietal aroma, with hints of mature fruits, including jams (plums and bilberries), overlaying truffle and bay leaf aromas. The palate is ample and generous, with excellent sweet tannins that open out to fruit-laden nuances reminiscent of the nose. As the wine reaches chambré temperatures it exudes rich hints of leather and vanillin that evolve towards a sensuous and persistent, long finish.
