"The 2007 Gran Elias Mora was sourced from 70+-year-old vines and aged for 12 months in new French oak after which selected barrels were aged for an additional 5 months. It is a glass-coating purple/black color with aromas of graphite, Asian spices, lavender, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry. Layerd, already complex, and structured on the palate, it merits 5 years of cellaring and will be at its best from 2015 to 2027." (04/10)

"Bright purple. Heady, exotic bouquet of black raspberry, cherry-cola, potpourri and sandalwood. Fleshy, alluringly sweet cherry pie and dark berry flavors gain sweetness with air, picking up musky licorice and rose pastille nuances. For a rich wine this is shockingly fresh. Finishes with excellent clarity and mineral-driven persistence. Already offers plenty of complexity now but this wine should reward patience." (10/10)
"The grapes come from the vineyards having belonged to Elias Mora, which he cultivated for 40 years and for whom the wine is named. The vines are a Tempranillo clone that yields small berries and is planted on small slopes with rocky soil."
"Harvested at the end of September. The wine was fermented in small stainless steel tanks for 22 days. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 12 months in second-fill American and French oak barrels. Clarification with egg whites was done before bottling. The wine was bottled without filtration or stabilization." -Importer
"This Bodega, situated in the famous village of San Roman de Hornija, was started by the two Victorias; Victoria Benavides and Victoria Pariente. The vision for the project included production of both white wines from Rueda and red wines from Toro. Recently, the Victorias have separated their winemaking facilities, with the Bodega in Toro renamed Bodegas Elias Mora, to better concentrate on production of each type of wine to its highest possible quality."
"The winery owns 8 Ha. (17.6 acres) of vineyards, including the 'Los Pajaros vineyard' and 'La Veleta' as well as a few small plots owned by farmers, also planted in San Roman de la Hornija. The vines are planted at 2,600 feet above sea level. The soil comprises clay and limestone with big stones on the surface."
"The winery is named after Elias Mora, the man who owned some of the core vineyards for the production of the Victoria's red wine. A few years ago, he sold his vineyard to Dos Victorias on the condition that he tend the vineyard until his death."-Importer
