Almirez- This is a beast of a Tempranillo. Known in the DO as Tinta de Toro, the wine is brawny and brambly with licks of blackberry, vanilla and smoky plum. Full bodied with racy acidity and a penetrating finish. Rich and rugged. A goodie to have in the cellar. I love it. The 2012 vintage is drinking beautifully right now #toro #almirez #winetasting #winelover #winetime #tempranillo

Vino de capa alta, en nariz cacao, café y frutas rojas con gran potencia. En boca buena entrada, estructura potencia y un final agradable y largo.

This is a fantastic wine. Great value. Licorice, pipe tobaco, chocolate and black cherries in the nose.
Silky mouth feeling, finishing up to a minute. Drinking smooth.
Fantastic pqr.
I love the bigger brothers too but this is a hidden gem if you are in to powerful yet smooth.

I think had this decanted and hour or two it may have been more to my taste. Less fruit more earth would probably age very well.

Very good. Deep red, big body and structured finish. Drinkable now, but has the stuff to age.
