"The 2016 San Román was cropped from a generous vintage, which meant great balance in the grapes, good freshness, very fine tannins and less concentration. Having said that, I think the wine has great aging potential; it's not really a light wine (it's Toro after all), and it has structure and good grip and a classical profile, still quite generously oaked and in need of some time in bottle. They used a small percentage of 500-liter barrels for the élevage of some plots. It should turn into a very classical García wine with a few years in bottle. 100,000 bottles produced. It matures in oak for two years. It was bottled in January 2019."

Lovely bright fruit on display here, ranging from elderberries to blueberries to blackberries with lavender undertones. Medium-bodied with some really firm tannins and quite structured on the finish. Drink now.

Floral,earthy and vivid fruitiness, its agility, breadth and length stand out, with fresh and fine tannins. San Román 2016 was bottled in January 2019 after spending 24 months in 225 and 500 litre barrels of both new and used French and American oak." - Winery
