Last night’s late decision to join the First Saturday share a bottle and food was a smart one. While there were a number of wines to taste, I only had time to try a few. My contribution was a garnacha from Catalina, Spain - the Familia Torres Grans Muralles. The 2016 Grans Muralles is a harmonious blend of garnacha, cariñena, and monastrell. Wishing I had more of that one because it was pretty spectacular.
Familia Torres is located in Conca de Barberà in the far northern inland sector of Tarragona and due west of Barcelona. The region is primarily known for Cabernet, the Torres family has been quietly planting indigenous grape varieties in the region.

2004 | Cabernet Sauvignon
Miguel Torres, S.A.; Manso de Velasco VV
Curicó Valley, Chile
A truly great South American Cabernet, just give it lots of room to age and decant. No jammy stuff here, elegantly evolved dried red/purple fruits, dried sage and dry earth; plenty of leather and rehydrated cherry with a satisfying, long finish. Disappointingly our final 2004 bottle from a 3-pack buy in Nov. 2007 for $28/ea; value delivered and patience rewarded!
Old school bottle, so thick walled it could go to bat for any inning or bounce off the pavement without concern... — a month ago
