From the Critics:

  • "For example, 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 or more rather than $16.50."

    "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." (11/13) - 91 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  • "(this 100% tinta de toro wine went through malo in new French oak and then spent six months in another set of new barrels): Bright purple. 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." (10/13) - 91 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
