2017 Torres Mas La Plana Cabernet Sauvignon, Penedes, Spain (750ml)
The Mas la Plana is graceful and balanced despite its firm and dominant tannin profile. Bright crunchy acidity ensures a wine that will develop in the cellar for years to come. This polished red displays hints of its Mediterranean heritage with herbaceous bramble while holding true to brooding currant and loamy earth, reminiscent of old-world Cabernet Sauvignon.
Inviting mint, floral, cassis, clove and cinnamon nose. Juicy, lively and fresh on entry, with densely-packed soft black fruits, blackcurrant jam and spice. Textural and long with fine silky tannins and tidily-integrated acidity. Superb overall length and finish.
- Decanter, 97 pts.
Aromas of blackcurrants, fresh herbs and sweet tobacco follow through to a medium to full body and firm, chewy tannins that are fine-textured, yet very evident, suggesting two to four years of bottle age will soften the wine. One of the best Mas La Planas in a while. Try after 2023.
- James Suckling, 93 pts.
