Winemaker Notes

This intricate red exudes plush dark fruit with warming shades of baking spice, Madagascan vanilla, anise and dusty earth undertones. Fine grain tannins add depth to this exotic fruit and spice medley. Hallmark characters of the lesser known Querol and Garró grapes provoke rustic layers of bay leaf, balsamic and cracked black peppercorn.

JS 95
James Suckling
Very deep and complex nose of wild berries and herbs. In spite of the enormous concentration and the sweetness from super-ripe fruit this has good balance thanks to the great tannins. An excellent Mediterranean wine that will live for decades.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The superb red blend 2010 Grans Muralles is a multi-grape mixture of Garnacha Tinta, Monastrell, Querol, Cariñena and Garró grown on slate soils in the appellation Conca de Barberà, in the vicinity of the Poblet monastery, which is surrounded by walls that name the wine. It's a dark, concentrated and closed red with a clear Mediterranean profile slowly revealing aromas of esparto grass, tree bark and a rustic, somewhat dusty touch that coats the ripe black fruit. It matured for 18 months in new French oak barrels and it's still not oaky, but the palate reveals some spicy flavors and some pointy tannins that should polish with more time in bottle. A very good showing for Grans Muralles.

Wine & Spirits
Torres launched Grans Muralles in 2006, an effort to recover old grapes from near extinction. It includes varieties such as querol and garró, which they blend with monastrell, garnacha and cariñena. In this latest release, Muralles maintains an imposing style, the wine’s superripe fruit and chestnut flavors impacted by its powerful tannins. Still youthful, this needs at least five years in the bottle to fully develop.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This blend of Carignan, Garnacha, Monastrell and several other local grapes opens with gritty, cheesy aromas of oak, tar and asphalt along with savory berry fruits. A saturated, dense palate weighs in as heavy and thick, tasting of reedy berry fruits, roasted plum, savory spices and grilled steak. A blackened, oaky finish is a touch syrupy in feel but quite deep and long. Drink through 2023.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This plump red is tender yet deep, with cherry, currant, vanilla and spice flavors that are fresh and harmonious. Notes of licorice and mountain herb add interest, while sweet-tart acidity keeps this lively. Cariñena, Garnacha, Querol, Monastrell and Garró. Drink now through 2022.

Familia Torres Familia Torres Winery Image

In 2020, Familia Torres Winery is celebrating their 150th anniversary, but the family’s roots extend even farther than that. The first mention of the Torres wine family was in 1557, but the winery wasn’t established until 1870, when the profits from the family shipping company made it possible to enter the commercial wine space.

Miguel Torres Vendrell founded the company, and since then, the family has passed on the winery (and the name Miguel) steadfastly from generation to generation. They hit a setback when the winery was bombed during the Spanish civil war, but Miguel Torres i Carbó rebuilt, and began the bottling and exporting of the wine.

In 1991, Miguel A. Torres took the reigns, and remains president today. He made remarkable strides in environmental advocacy, social responsibility, fair trade, and research and innovation. Since 2012, Miguel Torres Maczassek has been at the helm, and has continued his father’s work, while also embarking on his own projects. Recognized year after year and Drinks Internationals’ “World’s Most Admired Wine Brand,” the story of Familia Torres is a known and respected one throughout Spain and the world.

Juan Torres Master Distillers is the spirits division of Familia Torres. Its origins date back to 1928 when Juan Torres Casals of the family’s second generation began making aged brandies matured in oak casks; smooth and aromatic spirits distilled from a selection of the finest white Penedès (Barcelona) wines. With 90 years to its name, Juan Torres Master Distillers continues to perfect the art of distillation to this day – a constant pursuit of excellence that finds reflection in each one of its ten, exquisitely crafted spirits, including brandy, pisco, and orange liqueur produced under the brands Torres Brandy, El Gobernador, and Magdala. These elegant, personality-driven spirits find their perfect match in the world of mixology, where they live up to the expectations of a new consumer who delights in shared moments of superior quality.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
