The Mas La Plana Cabernet Sauvignon by Miguel Torres shines in the glass in a dense ruby red with purple highlights.
The complex bouquet is carried by the typical notes of the grape variety - from truffles to berry jams to juicy black cherries. Due to the maturity of the wood, the aromas of the nose are accompanied by hints of toasted bread, vanilla and some coffee.
The palate enjoys a fleshy, supple and full-bodied character. The dense tannin structure is very present and harmoniously integrated into the spicy-sweet aromas (dark berries, dark chocolate and liquorice). The body convinces with strength, concentration and elegance. The long reverberation is carried by aromas of chocolate and freshly ground coffee.
