"This opens with offbeat floral and perfumed aromas of berry fruits and oak. The palate is jammy, tannic and squat in feel. Ripe black-fruit flavors come with ample chocolate and spice notes, while the finish is long, sturdy and intriguing, with chewy residual tannins. Drink through 2025." September 2016

"Crisp and firm, this focused red shows black cherry, licorice, fresh herb and loamy flavors. Muscular but lithe, with lively acidity and a spicy finish. Drink now through 2021. -TM"

Like all the Telmo Rodriguez wines from Toro, Gago is 100% Tinto de Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo). Gago is the second wine made in Toro by Telmo Rodriguez. The Telmo Rodriguez range in Toro is named after a Spanish breed of bull that is both elegant and powerful. The 19th century lower-case "g" typeface that appears on all the Toro wines is transformed, and modernized, by a bull horn." - Importer
"Telmo Rodriguez is one of Spain’s pioneer winemakers, advocating native grape varietals tied to the climates and conditions of their sites, and making world-class wines from undiscovered as well as known regions. Perhaps most impressive, while Telmo Rodriguez makes rare and limited wines of astonishing character and quality, his everyday wines have been equally praised, and widely recognized for the tremendous value they offer." - Importer
