Youthful and exuberant, with a generous blend of lead pencil, molasses and plum/berry aromas. Torres got the perfect level of ripeness and balance in this favorable vintage, and thus this is probably as good a Merlot as you're ever going to see from the Penedès. It's full and just sweet enough. Drink now through 2010.
