Toro, Castilla Y León

Bodegas Fariña

Gran Dama de Toro Toro Tempranillo 2014

This wine is a great combination of a licorice and a liqueur cherry. A third nose brings some delicate notes of chocolate. Maybe it was a mistake to open this wine now. — 8 days ago

Sabinares

El Temido Arlanza Tempranillo Blend 2013

Deep, elegant Tempranillo-based blend with some Mencía, Garnacha, Mazuelo and other yet unidentified indigenous varieties from recently recuperated old vineyards grown at elevations of over 1,000m within the Sabinares Natural Park in Arlanza -a small and relatively unknown appellation halfway between Ribera del Duero and Rioja. Savory, dusty, pine needles and balsamic notes, great acidity. Only 2742 bottles were filled in 2013. — 8 days ago

Rubén Díaz

Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Cuesta del Tejar Garnacha 2016

Ruben Diaz Cerro de la Estrella. Ripe and tart blueberry and plum. Iron, clove, mint, and bay leaves. Stony minerality. In between ruby and garnet. More juicy red plum and red cherry on the palate. Low acidity, medium (+) tannins, elevated body (14.5% abv). — 5 days ago

Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos

Viña San Román Toro Tempranillo 2014

Always a solid bet. Toro wines are typically hard beasts but this one displays elegance and finesse which is hard to resist. Yes, there’s plenty of oak here but I’ve found that, with time, it tones down and blends a bit more with the red and black fruits. Great value alternative to Ribera del Duero and even some Napa Cabs. — 13 days ago

Hermanos del Villar

Oro de Castilla Rueda Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Herbaceous and crisp. A touch of lime, some lychee, and a dash of yellow grapefruit. Refreshing. Great deck wine and a steal on and end of bin bargain. — 5 days ago

Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2006

Just a baby. Extremely tight when first opened. 45 min later lent to a fragrant aroma out of the glass. Higher acidity but luscious mouth feel. Tannins not integrating yet. Never unhappy to have this but 10+ years would go a long way — 6 days ago
