- Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011 Product #29191 (In Stock)
This has been a Spanish value staple for years now, and the 2011 is yet another fine Toro Tempranillo. The wine is 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo), hand harvested from vines 30+ years-old. There’s plenty of ripe Temparnillo fruit here – cherry, blackberry and plum – and very nice doses of wood spice and the grape’s exotic sandalwood fragrance. But cool nights on the vine and careful treatment in the winery leave a bright, refreshing, acidity in place as well and the smooth, refined, tannins don’t get in the way of solo sipping pleasure. A lot of wine for a very modest price.
"Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and roasted coffee on the nose, with attractive floral and spicecake notes. Lush and expansive in the mouth, offering broad cherry and cassis flavors and a hint of licorice. A suave, gently sweet and open-knit wine, with a spicy element emerging on the long, gently tannic finish."International Wine Cellar 90 points
- Romanico Tinto De Toro (Tempranillo) 2012 Product #29153 (In Stock)
This powerhouse just keeps getting better and bettter.
"The 2012 Romanico (1,500 cases produced) is made from 100% Tinta de Toro (the local name for Tempranillo), and is aged for six months in a combination of new and used French oak. Malolactic is done in oak, and the result is full-bodied, opaque purple-colored wine with superb richness as well as lots of blackberry, charcoal and cassis intermixed with licorice, new saddle leather, pepper and bouquet garni. This nearly viscous red should drink beautifully for 7-10 years."Wine Advocate 92 points
