Finca Sobreno Toro 2009 Product #26865 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Toro 2009 Finca Sobreno Toro 2009

The best vintage in a while for this always excellent Toro Tempranillo value!  Plenty of ripe blackberry and plum, chocolate, and a nice touch of spice on the nose and palate.  Gently marked by well-integrated American oak, this is still a touch firm on the finish, so better with food.  Very nice value!

"Bright violet color. Smoky perfume of candied cherry and dark berries with a spicy overtone. Pliant and velvety in texture, offering gently sweet cherry and blackberry flavors that put on weight in the glass. Ripe and lively on the powerful finish, showing gentle tannins and persistent sweetness."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Telmo Rodriguez "g" Dehesa Gago Toro 2011 Product #26971 (In Stock)
Telmo Rodriguez Telmo Rodriguez

Another very nice release of the old-vine Tinto de Toro (Tempranillo) from Telmo Rodriguez.  No oak, but lots of lush richness and a touch of licorice and chocolate from the ripe grapes, too.  Nice write up in the Washington Post as well!

"Star Spanish winemaker Telmo Rodriguez produces this sensuous red from old-vines Tinto de Toro, the local name for Spain’s flagship Tempranillo. Fermented in concrete and stainless steel, this unoaked wine is lush and dense, almost chewy in texture. Any restaurant with a charcuterie plate should carry this bottle."  ** Washington Post, 3/15/13

Romanico Tinto De Toro (Tempranillo) 2011 Product #28044 (In Stock)
Romanico Tinto De Toro (Tempranillo) 2011 Romanico Tinto De Toro (Tempranillo) 2011

A ripe, rich, Tempranillo that, as Robert Parker says, "tastes like a wine that costs $50."  But it doesn't, not by a long-shot.  From brothers Marcos and Miguel Eguren, who previously created and sold Numanthia-Termes.

"Intense dark berry aromas are complemented by potpourri, cola and vanillin oak. Broad, palate-coating blackberry and blueberry flavors become livelier with air and show an energetic spiciness. Finishes with very good clarity and juicy persistence, the cola and spice notes repeating."International Wine Cellar 91 points

"These are both sensational values from Toro, one of my favorite Spanish appellations in the province of Zamora. This estate largely follows organic viticultural practices in its north-facing vineyards. The soils are primarily sandy/loam, and all of the head-pruned vineyards were planted between 1880 and 1940, and the wines are made from tiny yields. The 2011 Romanico (100% Tinta de Toro) was fashioned from yields of 22 hectoliters per hectare, and was aged six months in 100% new French oak. A sensational red, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet perfume of lead pencil shavings, violets, licorice, blackberries and black currants. Keep in mind that Tinta de Toro is essentially a cousin of Tempranillo, but a lower yielding grape. Full-bodied with a voluptuous texture and a long finish, it should drink well for 6-10 years. It tastes like a wine that costs $50."Wine Advocate 91 points

Bodegas Maurodos San Roman Toro 2009 Product #27263 (In Stock)
Bodegas Maurodos San Roman Toro 2009 Bodegas Maurodos San Roman Toro 2009

The San Roman Toro has been one of the region’s best, most consistent, wines for years, always marrying the intense ripeness you’d expect from Toro with just a touch more class and sophistication than you usually find.  In 2009, both the ripeness and the sophistication have reached new  heights – even as this pre-release pricing brings the cost down to less than our best prices on the 2003 or 2005 vintages!

“The 2009 San Roman comes from 45-year-old bush vines or older in San Roman, Morales de Toro, Arjujillo, Villaester and El Pego between 720 and 760 meters and sees 24 months in new and used French (70%) and American (30%) oak. It offers a very seductive bouquet with luscious red berry fruit – raspberry, wild strawberry infused with crushed violets that open with aeration. The palate is full-bodied and very well-balanced, ripe succulent tannins, plush blueberry and black cherries forming the core followed by a silky, ripe, sensual, velvety smooth finish. Modern in style, but extremely well-crafted, this is a sensational, delicious Toro red. Drink now-2018+.”Wine Advocate 96 points
