Until now I can still remember the taste of Mas La Plana 2003. Torres is one of my favor winery in Spain. Tempranillo is the main grape used in Rioja & "Crianza" is a wine aged for at least one year in oak. In Rioja, the 2006 vintage was cooler than the riper 2005 and 2004 vintage, and many wineries took advantage to produce wine with bright, fresh character. This wine is in bright purple red color. It performs stainless steel, light earthy & spicy notes at the beginning. Having opened for 30 minutes, it was full mouth of ripe and fresh fruit. Balance and lively, with luscious Black berry and black cherry fruit supported by underlying tannins and gentle acidity. Peel of citrus fruit, plum and red bean shines through the finish. A fine companion for food. Drink now - 2012.
