Familia Torres Mas La Plana, DO Penedès — 2015 – Jancis Robinson – 17.5 Points
Transparent ruby. Warm, mellow, well-melded tertiary aromas on the nose. Good freshness on the finish as well as the ripe fruit. Nothing like a bordeaux – softer and sweeter initially with much less aggressive tannin – and why should it be? Very mellifluous. Lovely drinking now with the slightest hint of spearmint and some herbal quality. Great to have such mellowness so soon.
