About

93

"Very pretty aromas reminiscent of graphite, crushed blackberries and capuccino undertones that turn floral. Concentrated and fine-grained Toro with berry flavors. Plenty of wood, yet this is silky and attractive. Better to drink in 2018 but delicious now."

93 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"(aged for two years in 75 percent French and 25 percent American oak barrels, half of them new) Inky purple. Heady cherry, dark berry, vanilla and violet pastille qualities on the oak-accented nose. At once rich and energetic; a firm spine of acidity provides lift to sweet cassis, blueberry and vanilla flavors. Closes with youthful tannic grip and impressive persistence, leaving dark berry and licorice candy notes behind."

93 Luis Gutierrez - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2013 San Román was produced with fruit from older vineyards in Toro. In 2012 they started reducing the amount of the new oak in this wine and the change is quite noticeable. There is something leafy and floral showing elegance within the power that the place provides naturally. 2013 was quite different in Toro from Ribera del Duero, here the cooler years are a plus, as they balance the extra ripeness the place provides. In 2013 there was no rain during the harvest and the grapes were very healthy. There are some fine tannins and the profile of a more austere and transparent vintage, a mineral year. But it does have the smokey and slightly wild character of Toro. 87,000 bottles produced."

Product Description:

"A very expressive nose with a pronounced mineral character, balsamic aromas and notes of graphite. Broad, succulent, great freshness and persistence.

Magnificent vintage in Toro with a cold and rainy spring that slowed the growth cycle and caused occasional frosts. Severe green-pruning took place to lighten the production and ensure flawless development of maturation, after a late veraison with a final stretch of summer with cool nights. A long harvest began locally in September and generally from October 5th with excellent acidity and moderate alcoholic levels." - Winery
