Suave and fleshy, very approachable vintage.

The 2016 Bodegas San Roman Toro follows the really impressive line of San Roman wines over the past decade. Needing a two hour decant to fully evolve, once on the nose you are impressed by the intensity of massive dark fruits but non-fruit aromatics of tar, sandalwood and leather that combine with shades of damp earth. The palate is plush, with silky tannins and toasty oak that are artfully woven into the core of blackberry cobbler, blueberry cordial, mocha, and creosote tones. Showing a great feeling of range, with vibrant acidity, a light dusting of salinity and excellent weight, the 2016 Bodegas San Roman Toro will enjoy an exceedingly long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2038- 95

The 2015 Bodegas San Roman Toro is another sensational release from this storied property in the Toro region. Toro saw very high heat spikes in 2015 so it is not surprising to see this massive wine weighing in at 14.5% alcohol. Needing a one hour hour decant, after some air this beautiful wine slowly unveils gorgeous aromatic range from black tea and Asian spices that mingle with notes of milk chocolate covered red cherry and tobacco leaf that are all marvelously woven together in the glass. The texture is soft and sumptuous, giving this wine a hedonistic edge. Suggestions of black forest cake and sweet pipe tobacco fill the palate, deftly mingling with minerals and peat moss tones. This finishes exceedingly long with dark fruits and minerals. While this is a delight to savor in its youth, the 2015 San Roman has both the acidity and stuffing to cellar well for the next twenty years. Drink 2020-2035- 94

The 2015 San Roman is gorgeous right now. Following extended air contact, the wine begins to opens with a ripe dark fruit bouquet with toasty oak, white rose and milk chocolate shavings which all build in th glass. On the palte this displays a wonderful combination of tension and viscosity. Blueberry Coulis, blackberry pie, coffee grounds and dark chocolate flavors all come to mind. Complex and seductive, this will have an exceedingly long life in the cellar. Drink 2019-2030- 93

13 years in and still a joy (with a good bit of life left if you want to hold). Aromas of jammy black cherry and bacon fat. Lush cherry and blueberry backed with licorice and mocha, moderate buoying acidity and still-firm tannins. Yum! #tintadetoro #toro #spanishwine

Boldly structured with aromas of wet soil, campfire, and dark chocolate. Paired with baked provoleta cheese, yummy! Drinking the 2014 which is still a bit young.

Flirting with perfect for my dad's 80th birthday dinner. Cherries, chocolate and melting, mouth watering tannins.

Vanilla bean pods, cedar cigar box, blueberry preserves, overripe plum, fig, and star anise make up a generous nose. Viscous, black fruits dominate the mouthfeel, with secondary notes of leather and licorice. Chewy tannins linger with blackberry pie and charred oak flavors. Acidity hangs in just enough to stay balanced. Paired with a Creekstone Farms ribeye... but would also go well with chocolate cake or alongside a winter fire.

Reeling over how complex, rich, spiced, and flavorful this is. Easily one of the most mesmerizing Spanish red wines I’ve had in quite some time.
