"The 2004 Tocs was sourced from a single vineyard and is composed of 35% Garnacha, 30% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot aged for 16 months in 80% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it delivers a stimulating perfume of wood smoke, slate, espresso, blackberry, and black currant. Harmonious, ripe, and loaded with spicy red and black fruits, the wine has tons of flavor and a 60-second finish. It will evolve for several years and provide pleasure through 2020."

"Vibrant cherry and blackberry aromas are underscored by bright mineral and exotic floral qualities; this received serious oak treatment but I don't find the wood intrusive. Sweet red fruit flavors are subtly complemented by floral pastille and Indian spices. The long, gently tannic finish features spicy, building flavors of redcurrant and cherry. A sample of the proposed 2005 version was almost as good, perhaps a tad more energetic but less deep."
"The Nebot-Vila family has backed up this project in El Priorat. The vines are in the municipality of Poboleda, in the northeast part of the DO, at the foot of Montsant. The steep vineyard is terraced, with two rows of vines on each terrace. The varieties are: Grenache, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines are trained in double cordon royat. There is a water pond to store water and a drip irrigation system to be used whenever it is necessary. The final result is TOCS, the first wine born from the property's grapes." -Importer
