About

90

"The 2013 Prima was bottled in May 2015, and is a blend of Tinta de Toro (aka Tempranillo) and 10% Garnacha with a little bit of white Malvasía. The wine matured, part in used barrique and part in oak vats, in order to keep the fruit. 2013 was a cooler vintage, which in Toro produced a slow ripening of the grapes. Bright ruby-colored, the nose is cooler, earthy and showing fresh herbal aromas with red fruit and more mineral notes as it opens up in the glass, where graphite, peat and some notes made me think of a classical wine from Bordeaux. The palate is medium-bodied, with very fine tannins and good acidity; it is very elegant, balanced, fresh and easy to drink. 175,000 bottles were produced."

"Deep ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of dried cherry, cassis, lavender and smoked meat, with a hint of pipe tobacco in the background. Chewy and focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of gaminess. The smoke and cherry notes repeat on the long, youthfully tannic finish. This wine was aged for a year in used French and American oak barriques."

Product Description:

"With ripeness being easy to accomplish in Toro, its balance that is the hallmark of a great Toro producer. The Prima showcases its richness like a ballerina. Hints of toastiness linger, but its the vibrant fruit that carries the day. Drink now or in the next several years." Distributor's notes
