Torres Salmos 2016
|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
Dark violet. Aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry pit, licorice candy and smoky minerals; a floral overtone builds with air. Juicy and penetrating in the mouth, offering concentrated bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and hints of licorice and candied violet. Shows fine definition and power on the impressively long finish, which is framed by slow-mounting tannins.
Earthy dark-berry aromas are a touch flat and full. This Carignan-led blend displays chewy dry tannins on a bold palate that leans towards the ripe side. Blackberry, schisty graphite and herbal flavors finish steady, with touches of licorice and fennel. Drink through 2026.
Earthy and mineral notes frame a core of plum and wild herb flavors in this thick red. Firm tannins and balsamic acidity support the dense texture. Subtle, savory and intense. Carignan, Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2030. 891 cases imported.
