Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wine Values of 2002

The traditional Tempranillo variety is the basis of Coronas, ennobled with a small proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. Delicate floral aromas over a background of very ripe fruit (blackberry and strawberry), oak and truffles. Its tannins have a fruity, meaty structure that evolves into velvety touches of smoke and spices acquired during ageing. Delicious with meat, stews, casseroles, and traditional Spanish paella. Perfect with creamy cheeses.

About Torres:

In 1870, when the Torres family founded its wine-making and exporting company, they understood the importance of both respecting traditions and maintaining the utmost quality of their products. Today, thanks to this hundred year old commitment, Bodegas Torres is a strong leader in the Spanish wine and brandy industry.
