Sangre de Toro. Torres 2016

Member Review by noshooz:

Nice fruity nose, light peppery/spicy palate, smooth finish. It actually paired well with pigs-in-a-blanket.

  Torres is one of the world’s most recognizable brands of Spanish wine and is 100% family owned. The company was founded by Jaime and Miguel Torres in 1870, and is now overseen by 4th generation wine producer Miguel Angel Torres. The headquarters of the winery is in Vilafranca del Penèdes in Catalonia, although the family controls several wineries throughout Spain as well as Chile and California. The wines range from entry level premiums, such as Sangre de Toro (the one with the little bull charm on its neck), to quality-driven mid and higher priced ranges, as well as dessert wines and brandies.    A large percentage of the Torres vineyards are organic and sustainable, with efforts to increase those numbers. They also contribute to wildlife conservation efforts with a fund to protect the Bonelli's Eagle in Catalonia and the Condor in Chile.  Read less

A good way to try grenache. Its a value priced deep fruit. The bitterness do not make a dent on this easy drinking biofriendly wine.

Wine and Food: Superb with roasts, casseroles, game and traditional Spanish meat dishes. Tasting Notes: Deep ruby colour with a hint of ochre. Rich complex Mediterranean aromas with exuberant notes of spices and blackberries. Velvety tannins are noted on the palate with elegant flavours of liquorice and small dark forest fruits (blueberries and blackcurrants).

Abundantly fruity aroma suggestive of wild raspberries, with an earthy hint of spiciness. Generous and smooth on the palate.

The other "Bull's Blood" is a spicy blend of Grenache and Cariñena. The bouquet offers aromas of sweet sun-ripened cherries and blackberries, while the American oak contributes a touch of black pepper and spice. Eminently enjoyable.

A perennial Best Buy, Sangre de Toro always delivers a quality red-wine experience that does not bowl you over. here the aromas are light and jammy, with strawberry. The body is medium in weight and intensity, with pure but basic cherry, raspberry and plum flavors. Like all other parts of the wine, the finish is easy and clean, with carry-over flavors of berry fruit.

Stocky and warm, with mild baked-fruit aromas and a hint of bramble. This venerable table wine is made from 65% Garnacha and 35 Cariñena, and from 2005 it's pretty much on the money. Expect earthy, mildly brambly flavors, lively acidity and soft tannins. Good for a wide range of simple foods and appetizers.

With 65% Garnacha and 35% Cariñena, this spends six months in American oak and nine months in large oak vats. Medium blackberry color. Warm nose with light, attractive oak, red cherries and wild strawberries. Smooth, velvety, mouth filling cherry fruit with firm tannins and a gutsy, rustic finish. Forthright and Spanish/Catalan in style. Exceptional value.
