Full. Black fruit. Well structured. Terrific with a meat. Toro is adjacent to Ribera del Duero. Think what Sonoma is to Napa. A great value from the Vega Sicilia house.

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.

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

2008 Très beau vin! Bel avenir! Encore jeune et plein de fruits. Va bonifier avec de la patience en cave.

I felt it left a "coating" on my tongue. More acidic (?)
