Intense at first in the nose with muddled cherry and blackberry in liquor, this wine is in control with perfectly integrated oak and fine silky tannin. I expect much more of a beast in the glass but this is beautiful and classy. The fruit on the palate has mellowed out and adds spice and grilled herbs. #toro #tintadetoro aka #tempranillo #vegasicilia — 4 years ago
Perfectly balanced, deep and fresh in flavor, a model for what the Tinta de Toro can be and achieve with balance and precision in the winemaking. Young and right, but lots of juicy acidity and freshness. The tannin is perfect, not too firm, not too dry or too ripe. Blue, black and red fruits with a beam of vanilla and cinnamon spice from the new French oak. Enjoy now with am 30-60 minute decant. #tintadetoro — 4 years ago
Plum, blackberry, rich but refined with very full grain and ripe tannin that meshes well with the full, but not overblown Toro style of wine. I had this from a 3L a few days before and it was much more open and naturally in a better place being open and decanted naturally as this was near the end of the 3L.
Top 3 producer for me in the region.
American, French and Hungarian oak, 70-30 or 60-40 French to American, Hungarian <1%. 200k bottles of production.

Deep, dark and elegant. Like a Black Stallion. It's so cool how the variety of #tempranillo #tintadetoro can be so different from its brothers and sisters. #smoky #meaty with touches of #paprika and #roastedredbellpepper one of the great #toro originally made by #eguren now a #vuitton #hennessey venture. — 4 years ago
