Gran Sangre de Toro Reserva 2009. Miguel Torres. Catalunya

Gran Sangre de Toro 1 (Custom)

I am a big fan of Miguel Torres and his wines and regularly buy Vina Sol and the Coronas table wines.

His Chilean Santa Digna offerings are pretty good too.

So I was a bit disappointed with this Reserva which I found in Dunnes and served at a dinner party.

Deep berry colour, fruity with a slight hint of spice but just didn’t have the complexity going the extra distance for a grand reserve.

60% Grenache with 25% Carignan (Mazuelo) and 15% Syrah

Dunnes: on offer at €12:20

2nd bottle served showed signs of slight oxidation so perhaps it’s approaching / passing its drink by.
