A massive Tempranillo from the Toro DO of Castilla y Leon, this wine delivers a robust nose of black fruit and warm oak. Cherry and chocolate dance on the palate while firm, but round tannins balance the long finish. Be sure to decant this beauty!

A little top heavy but powerful, ripe, focused and finishes pure and concentrated.

From 3L open 24 hours and with about 1/3 remaining. The color is a deep crimson core, with ruby grading at the edges. From the glass rose deep aromas of macerated blackberry, black cherry, licorice, and spices, with hints of dried wild flowers, iron and forest floor. The palate is even better with more depth and a silky, refined structure that is defined by ripe tannins that caress the palate and accentuate the flavors that persist into the long finish. Exceptional Toro!

2008 Vintage. On the nose, scorched earth, black cherry, tar, menthol, black licorice, sappy herb, violets. The palate is serious, with fig, black cherry, plum, dark chocolate, and balsamic on a large frame. Big acid balances out big tannins, and big alcohol at 15%

Dark red, very spicy on smell, silky and milky on mouth. Very well balanced. Everlasting persistence. Lovely tempranillo produced by Vega Sicilia in Toro, Spain.

Pure and focused concentration of black cherry fruit with a mineral undertone adding depth of flavor and style. Oak presence is very well integrated after some bottle age. Keeps evolving on the glass with notes of menthol and tobacco. This beast of a wine shows enough restraint to keep you interested and seduced.

Just the other day I was hoping to taste a mature Pintia, and here it is. On the nose, I found brown spices, crushed black cherry, dark earth, rosemary and dried flowers. Soft textures offset by acid-driven black cherry, raspberry and savory spices greeted me on the palate. It finished long with penetrating fruit concentration, hints of gruff tannin and lingering spice. Intense!
