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

Great Tempranillo! Power but elegant. Lots of oak but elegant. Just lovely!

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.

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.

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
