Impressive entry level Tempranillo from Toro region in Spain. Bright ruby, rich texture with fresh acidity and black cherry notes. Outstanding value. 91 — 7 days ago
Nose a bit funky like black olive, the syrah component to this wine really amped its complexity. A bit more brooding than full tempranillo crianza offerings, this has integrated notes of cedar and ripe red fruits, and that touch of earthy, savory, lightly pungent syrah in support.
Good complement to garlic toast, roasted peppers and grilled salchiccons. — 14 days ago
The producer is using Tinto Fino not Tempranillo. Respectfully, requested Delectable change.
Ten years in bottle, time to check in on my first bottle of six.
On the nose, dark currants. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, baked black plum, raspberries & ripe strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, crushed limestone minerals, dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, steeped fruit tea, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes with red & dark fresh florals.
The body was big and very full with a hour in the decanter it moves to more medium full with another hour in the decanter. The structure, length, tension and balance are just arriving to a sweet spot. Still plenty of life left in this 05. Another 10 years and perhaps more. The tannins are still pronounced but softened & round with a strong dusty presence. The fruits are; gorgeous, sexy, lush & ripe. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum, creamy raspberries, raisins, ripe cherries & strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, dark chocolate, crushed limestone minerals, a fair amount of dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, hints of mint, dry herbs, steeped fruit tea, black licorice, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes, used espresso roast with red & dark, purple, fresh florals. The acidity is near perfect. The long, ripe, lush, well balanced finish is excellent and lasts minutes. Beautiful wine with sex-appeal.

De c-EYE-ear. We opened this and it smelled like paint. Not the beat way to impress a date. But ive never seen a wine open so quickly. Within 15 minutes this wine showed the profile classic to Ribera Del Duoro wines. This js a great value if you can find it, an even better winery if you're going to do the tour. — 13 days ago
What a wine
One of the best tempranillo in spain.
Opague velvety purple colour.
Spice and chocolate overtone with flicks of oak mocha and leather.
Full body, deep intense black currant and earthy mocha blueberry slap.
Long lasting mocha , black currant after taste ❤️ — 8 days ago
2006, such nice tannins. Haven’t had this wine in a long time. I am pleasantly surprised how delicious this wine is. With 90% Tempranillo, and 10% Cab, I am surprised how much tannins there are. 14% alcohol goes down easy, — 7 days ago
