    October 24, 2012 - I loved this wine! Garnet hue, aromas of black fruit and licorice. Dry, medium acidity, high intensity; low-medium tannins. Flavors of black fruit- dark cherries mostly. A tobacco flavor comes through on the finish. Medium-long finish. This wine starts out smooth and quickly develops into a full, luscious mouth-feel. I prefer dry, smooth but full wines with even tannins. Not a big fan of "fruit forward" wines. This is a favorite with me. p.s. I love all the TO wines, it seems. One of my favorite wineries.

    October 3, 2009 - another outstanding effort from TO ... let it breathe and WOW aromatics of spices and raspberry, loads of luscious red fruits on the palate and finishes with what is becoming the trademark of TO wines - a long lingering finish ... 87% Grenache 13% Petite Sirah -... YUM ... 90+

    April 17, 2009 - Very smooth drinking with a simple pop and pour, tons of black cherries on the palate. Medium length finish, very enjoyable to pair with BBQ turkey burgers, didnt linger over the tasting of it, just wishing I had more.

    September 27, 2008 - Nice light color, ruby see through red. Nice cherry and rasberry flavors, easy drinking soft in the mouth with enough structure to indicate that it will hold for a while (up to 5 years would be my estimate). Consistent with the 2005 vintage.

    July 4, 2008 - Calaveras County Wine Tasting (The Twisted Oak Winery, and Murphys, CA.): This is a puzzling one. The pourer told me confidently that this wine won two gold medals, and that everyone loves it. Dark garnet/purple in the glass, this wine displayed a nose of fertilizer, bacon fat, and clear oxidization. At first I thought my palate was still hanging on to the tempranillo, though I rinsed my glass until it smelled clean. I retasted the Torcido several hours later in the Murphys tasting room. The nose was clearly oxidized here as well. Both pourers said the wine smelled and tasted as it always did, leading me to believe the entire batch suffered oxidization. I'm really perplexed and disappointed. $32, no geek sheet.
