Why we offer this to you ...
Only after we tasted and ordered this wine we found out that this wine is praised by the global wine community as the best wine from the small Toro region outperforming wines for triple the price. Also only after we ordered it we got aware of the fact that were very lucky to get as much as we got since the wine is almost impossible to get after the media show began. So please be patiened with us when we say we can only provide you with limited amounts of bottles.
What does it taste like ...
When pouring the wine it's nose makes you want to drink it instantly and skip the decanting time of 1-2 hours. In the case of San Roman you taste exactly what you smell.nice ripe red and black fruit, vanilla and some spices hidden in the end of the finish of this wine. The smooth tannins provide a very long finish that for sure will leave a smile on your face for quite a while.
Even if you don't like wine (we had that case) this one will convert you.
I can't describe it better:
"The 2009 San Roman comes from 45-year-old bush vines or older in San Roman, Morales de Toro, Arjujillo, Villaester and El Pego between 720 and 760 meters and sees 24 months in new and used French (70%) and American (30%) oak. It offers a very seductive bouquet with luscious red berry fruit – raspberry, wild strawberry infused with crushed violets that open with aeration. The palate is full-bodied and very well-balanced, ripe succulent tannins, plush blueberry and black cherries forming the core followed by a silky, ripe, sensual, velvety smooth finish. Modern in style, but extremely well-crafted, this is a sensational, delicious Toro red. "
