Bit of a crime to broach this now, but hey…

Mas La PlanaTorres Mas La Plana Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Penedès, Spain (£40 Waitrose, Hailsham Cellars, Santé Wine, The Oxford Wine Co, Dennhofer Wines, Dylans Wine Merchants, Noel Young, Slurp.co.uk, Soho Wine Supply, Martinez Wines, Tanners, Clifton Cellars, Handford Wines, Amazon, Vintagemarque.com, Corking Wines)
Starts off dumb, then seems simple, and it’s only when it’s been open an hour or so that the ruddy berry and blackcurrant flavours and toasty oak are joined by more complex, spicy, and herby notes, along with a note of what I think of the classic Spanish warm roof-tile character. Balanced and classy, but some way from its peak. S+
