Familia Torres Mas La Plana Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5 Liter Magnum 2013
The Mas la Plana is graceful and balanced despite its firm and dominant tannin profile. Bright crunchy acidity ensures a wine that will develop in the cellar for years to come. This polished red displays hints of its Mediterranean heritage with herbaceous bramble while holding true to brooding currant and loamy earth, reminiscent of old-world Cabernet Sauvignon.
Fig, vanilla, cola and chocolate aromas are classy and ripe, while this cool-vintage Cabernet from a vaunted vineyard in the Penedès is powerful, with tannic bite and acidic scour that should settle in due time. Root beer, chocolate and baked berry flavors don’t fall into jammy laziness, while this is intense on the finish. Everything adds up to a great wine that needs even more time; drink from 2021–2045. - 93pts Robert Parker
