    July 20, 2020 - CT Note #2000!!!!
    Tasted double-blind. Correctly identified as a Toro. And to be fair it was my wine and this is at least the third time I have had it.
    Dark color with just some garnet color revealing its age. Smooth tannins, smooth dried fruit, mature aromas of tar, spice, fig, clove, and spice on the palate seem to last for ages. Not as concentrated or complex as one would wish, but very refined and delightful. Favorite overall wine as voted on by the group.

    July 4, 2020 - From 75cl, good-quality cork. Lighter colour than expected, but still robust red, just a hint of orange suggesting this is nearing the age of 20. Utterly without humour, wit or levity, this po-faced, strict, dark-fruited, overly-tannic, extracted wine does have a thick, luxurious texture (and some dark spice in there somewhere well hidden). But I can't imagine why I was stupid enough to have paid 33 EUR for it back in the day (2004, when that sum would have bought very good GCC Bordeaux en primeur, exceptional Rioja Gran Reserva at retail, or indeed Alion, Mauro, Pesquera etc. etc.) What a lousy investment. It's conceivable that in another 10 years this crabby, butch, pretentious and very ugly duckling will transform into a fragrant swan. But I fear not, and regret having bought far too much of this, the 2003 , the 2004 and the 2005 on the strength of Mr. Parker's fulsome praise. Anyone want to swap my remaining bottles for their e.g. MdM Castillo Ygay GR 2001/2004/2005 (which were cheaper then, but didn't tickle Mr. Parker's palate?) Or La Rioja Alta 904? Or even (to take a new-style, big, butch product) Mauro? No, thought not. 88-89P(?)

    December 25, 2019 - Deep garnet with minimal signs of bricking at the edges. Restrained nose that starts with earthy, mushroom, forest floor aromas and ends with dark fruit (black currant, blackberry/cherry) and chocolate, mint, espresso, liquorice and roasted herb. Smooth tannins and medium finish with drying fruit (roasted plum, berries), dried herbs and toasted oak. Really wish this had a longer finish.
