In the small vineyard of Mas la Plana only the most select Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown. These are used to make strictly limited quantities of Torres' most prestigious red wine.
Deep dense cherry color, with a touch of mahogany. Wonderfully intense bouquet typical of this vineyard: hints of cranberries, cherries and truffles, with an incense-like quality developed during aging in wood. Full, elegant and pronounced aftertaste, befitting a wine of this quality.
A perfect partner for the finest meat and game dishes.
"The 2003 Mas La Plana is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from an estate vineyard in Penedes. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak. Purple-colored, it reveals an expressive bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. Medium to full-bodied, well-balanced, and intensely flavored, it has excellent depth and length. It will evolve in the cellar for 6-8 years and drink well through 2025.
The Wine Advocate
"Deep red. Smoky cherry and redcurrant aromas are complicated by cured tobacco, musky underbrush and licorice. Deep, weighty and broad, with potent bitter cherry and licorice flavors given energy by mineral and dried flower notes. Youthful tannins give this a firm finish, but there's ample supporting fruit. Still, I'd leave this one in storage for at least another five years."
International Wine Cellar
"A core of fleshy plum and currant fruit is accented by vanilla, coffee and a hint of tar. There's a slightly rustic character, but this is solid and well-integrated, with a lingering floral note on the finish. Best after 2008. 10,000 cases made."
"This classic Torres wine (the first vintage was in 1970) comes from a 71-acre vineyard near Penedès. The latest release is rich in aromas of coffee and dark chocolate with a fig detail. It is deeply flavored, with soft tannins shaped by the heat of the vintage. A generous cabernet for roast duck."
