By far one of the most flavorful Tempranillo varieties I've ever had. A new favorite. I could drink this all night. In fact, I think I will.

100% Tempranillo. Telmo Rodriquez was one of the first to rediscover decades old, bush-trained vineyards in Toro, focussing on the cooler sub region that brings freshness and balanced fruit. Dehesa Gago is named after a Spanish breed of bull that is elegant and powerful. On the palate blackberry flavors with cacao. Nice balance with acidity and fine tannins. On the finish the fruit comes through with mineral tones on a long finish.

Color morado con ribete púrpura, capa y densidad alta, en nariz potencia media, frambuesa, mora, notas a lácteos. En boca buena entrada, buen tanino en el paso y final quizás un poco corto... Muy agradable...

Hella cool little ‘g’ label. Reminds me of the song “This Is How We Do It”. Color is dark as night. Slight sliver of crimson peaks in the edge. Smells of cedar shakes, mineral oils, moss and blackberry tart. Taste is full and fruity. Plums of the dark sort (maybe even dried plums) and cherry pits. Bit of licorice. Juicy. Dry. Woodsy. Maybe a hint over-ripe (raisiny). Not excessively deep, but it’s a nice full bodied Spanish red. The dark chocolate/coffee bite makes for a pleasant surprise.

Not much nose so hard to distinguish aromas. Flavor is fairly straightforward medium tannin and acid. Again, not much subtlety or distinct sub flavors. The one that seems to come up most strongly is black cherry. Quaffable but not remarkable. Edit: it’s not barrel aged (steel drums only) so that probably explains why it’s pretty boring.
