Bodegas Torres Coronas 2008
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 aging. Delicious with meat, stews, casseroles, and traditional Spanish paella. Perfect with creamy cheeses.
