[6 Reds For Any Season]
The occasion is what matters, not the time of year.
Below we'd like to tell you about 6 truly seasonless reds:
1. Bodegas Torres Celeste Crianza, Ribera del Duero, Spain - 90pts
Celeste is an opulent wine brimming with fruit, body and color: as unique as the night sky in the Ribera del Duero.
Grape Types: Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)
Dark cherry red with intense garnet highlights.
Aromas of black fruit (wild blackberries, blueberries) and delicate toasted notes (coffee) with nicely oak-aged undertones (toasted oak).
Serious and warm with very fine, juicy, velvety tannins.
2. Bodegas Torres Sangre de Toro, Catalunya, Spain - 91pts
A fine wine, made from Garnacha and Cariñena.
In the year 1954 Miguel Torres was already seeking out the most prized red grapes of the region, Garnacha and Cariñena, to create a different wine that would express the authentic character of the land. This led to the birth of "Sangre de Toro", whose name is inspired by Baccus, Roman god of wine, known in ancient times as "Son of the Bull".
Grape Types: Garnacha Tinta - Cariñena
Deep cherry red.
Rich aroma of dark berries (wild blackberries) with ripe (dried plums) and toasted (roasted coffee) notes.
An intense, warm, succulent palate with an echo of licorice on the finish.
3. Jean Leon Vinya Palau Merlot, Penedès, Spain - 90pts
One of the Nine fincas in Spain. If you are in doubt and Grand Cru breaks your wallet, go Vi de Finca.
Jean Leon wines were precursors of what we now call Single Vineyard Wines (Vi de Finca in Catalan). This designation, issued by the Catalan government, guarantees that the wine originates in a specific vineyard and displays a unique personality born from the interplay of the soil, the vines, the microclimate and the work carried out in the vineyard.
Grape Types: Merlot
Picota cherry red with a high robe.
Roast peppers, spices and roasted notes from the wine's aging in the barrel stand out in the nose, over a background of confected red fruits.
A lush, hedonist attack and a meaty mid palate with balanced acidity. The end has sweet tannins to accompany the acidity, with a long persistent finish.
4. Bodegas Torres Salmos, Priorat DOQ, Spain - 94pts
Discover the secret of Priorat DOQ. El Priorato – known in Catalan as Priorat – is a small and one-of-a-kind wine-making area with black hills where an intense, deep red wine has been produced for eight centuries. It's renowned for its quality and exquisiteness
Grape Types: Cariñena - Garnacha Tinta - Syrah
Deep aromatic intensity with a predominance of black fruit (cherry, cassis) accompanied by floral notes (violets) and delicate hints of toast.
Sweet entry to the palate, very silky, with a long, lingering finish.
This Wine is a homage to the monks of the courageous Carthusian order, who arrived in 'Priorat', in 1095, where they cultivated vines. In 1835 a violent crowd destroyed the work of a lifetime and sacked the monastery, events which later culminated in the auctioning of church lands known as the "Desamortización de Mendizábal". In 1996 the Torres Family began work on the planting of vineyards on the slopes strewn with the hard, black slate-like "Licorella" stone.
5. Miguel Torres Manso de Velasco Cabernet Sauvignon, Curico Valley, Chile - 94pts
Over 100-year-old vine-stock. This wine is made using only grapes from vines that are over 115 years old.
A tribute to Manso de Velasco, Governor of Chile during the colonial period. A brave, enterprising man, known for his strength on the battlefield, and founder of the city of Curicó, where these vines grow
Grape Types: Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense dark ruby color.
Delicious aroma with the classic notes of black fruit preserves and hints of leather.
Great elegance on the palate, with harmonious fruitiness and spiciness, and long, soft tannins, complemented toward the finish with delicate notes of toasted bread.
6. Bodegas Torres Grans Muralles, Conca de Barberá, Spain - 95pts
Ancestral vines. This wine takes its name from the walls that protected the monastery at Poblet during the Mercenary Wars.
Beautiful cherry color with hints of ochre.
Intense, complex aroma with notes of sultana, jam and agreeable touches of toast.
Expansive palate, broad with fruity, silky tannins and nuances of aromatic herbs (bay), resin (incense) and spices (cloves) that linger wonderfully on the finish.
The unmistakable identity of Grans Muralles is thanks to the stony, slate ground (Licorella) of the region, and the grape varieties used to make it. One century after the phylloxera plague the Torres family have begun to recuperate autochthonous grape varieties believed to be extinct, such as Garró and Samsó, using modern viticultural techniques. Together with red Garnacha, Mazuelo and Monastrell they create the unique spirit of this wine.
