Member Review by cesarhdez:

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.

  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

Medium red. High-toned aromas of cherry, red berries, mint and black pepper. Juicy and sappy, with complex flavors of blueberry, raspberry, leather and spices. A supple wine with decent weight in the mouth. A distinctly Spanish version of a Cote du Rhone, showing plenty of personality.

This Grenache-driven red offers rich blackberry and spice to complement roast fowl or pork.

Good full red. Complex if slightly reduced aromas of raspberry, bacon fat, spices and meat, with a hint of surmaturité. Superripe and sweet, with liqueur-like red fruits and spices; a bit roasted but decent acidity gives definition to the flavors. Firmly structured and spicy on the back.

This juicy red offers black cherry, chocolate and light herbal flavors, with light tannins and crisp acidity. A slight bitterness gives it a refreshing finish. Cariñena and Garnacha. Drink now through 2009.

Medium red. Slightly roasted, liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, red cherry and pepper. Fat and plump but vinous, with notes of roasted strawberry, fresh herbs and bonfire. Offers noteworthy sweetness in the middle and finishes with dusty but nicely ripe flavors. A very good value from this terrific vintage.

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.

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.
