''Our family, generation after generation, has passed down the secret of making great wines and the love of the land. This tradition and a vision for the future has transformed Torres into a renowned company whose products can now be found in more than 140 countries''.
The Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Salmos is a well-crafted, tasty blend of Carinena, Garnacha Tinta and Syrah aged for 14-16 months in French oak barrels. The fruit is fresh, more red cherries and strawberries, with hints of cinnamon and vanilla from the oak and a tasty, medium-bodied palate with very good acidity, clean and delineated. Very drinkable. Drink now-2017."
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.
Ageing Potential: 3 - 4 Years
Deep aromatic intensity with a predominance of black fruit (cherry, cassis) accompanied by floral notes (violets) and delicate hints of toast. Sweet entry to the palate, very silky, with a long, lingering finish.
