  • WOTN for me, makes me think the last bottle I had was an anomaly...singing with flavors of blackberry, dark plum, tar and a touch of mint on the finish.

  • seems a little past its peak. The acidity that provides such great lift has moved to the forefront - and the bright fruit that used to be at the front has receded slightly. Drink now

  • Ruby, medium (+) intensity, with a hint of garnet on the rim. Fairly thick and dark legs. The nose is clean, with blackberry, black cherry, black olive and oak-induced vanilla, cedar, chocolate, clove and tobacco. The palate is dry, but with generous fruit, mostly black cherry and cassis liqueur and licorice on the finish. The acidity is medium. The alcohol is medium (+) at 14.5% and still fairly hot. The tannins are medium (+) and still firm. This is a medium (+) to full-bodied red, with medium (+) flavor intensity and a moderately long finish. It is only moderately balanced due to prevalent alcohol and tannins, but may still soften with a little more bottle age. Drink now through 2017. I am not particularly a fan of Tempranillo (Tinta de Toro), but this is one of the better expressions of it I have had, and quite a good value.

  • Drank on day 2 as my wife had a glass on day 1. Almost ripasso like with a grapey finish; a big wine but drank nicely, not hot; not the most complex wine but would drink again; would not wait too mcuh longer to drink the wine.

  • First time I'd had this where it wasn't PnP at a restaurant from a recent vintage. While I enjoyed those, I didn't find a very compelling QPR. The bottle time and a few hours of air really let the tempranillo sing - wish I had more.
