Miguel Torres S.a. Penedès Fransola 1999

External Review by WineChateau.com:

Intense deep red colour with a purplish sheen. Aroma of exotic and profound complexity showing the wine's great density, incredibly rich body and structure. Note the hints of spices (pepper, clove), shrubs (thyme) and very ripe, small red berries (cranberry, redcurrant) over a background of smoke, vanilla and incense. On the palate the wine is a true revelation, a different style that at the same time evokes memories of other wines and other horizons. It grows as it warms up, exhibiting after a few seconds a fantastic series of flavours and memories... The dense but sweet tannins open up and once again deliver the spicy, fruity message of the bouquet and evolve in the aftertaste into a splendid finish that leaves a firm mark and a happy memory.

Don Miguel Torres:
The Torres family surname has been linked with wine for more than three centuries, during which time our ancestors have worked vineyards in Penedès, a land with a millenarian tradition of wine. Our family has been dedicated to working the land, passing on their commitment from generation to generation.
