Wonderfully dense, deep ruby red color with a purple hem in the robe. The delicately spicy bouquet smells extremely captivating of dark, ripe cherries, black forest berries, spices, ancient balsamic vinegar, Cuba cigar and a fresh mineral touch of graphite. Extremely masculine on the palate, dense tannin structure, noticeable but very well integrated aromas from the 18-month aging in 500 liter oak barrels, all in surprising balance. The reverberation also creates this balancing act between Toro power and Tempranillo elegance.

"It is pure Tinta de Toro, the local strain of Tempranillo from their head-pruned old vineyard Finca La Coscojosa, which was planted over 90 years ago. The wine follows traditional methods, was fermented in 500-liter oak barrels with manual daily punching down. It matured in brand new French oak barrels for 18 months. It feels obviously young, still marked by some toasty aromas that should integrate with a little more time in bottle. It's a serious, powerful and full-bodied red with lots of fruit and a juicy palate that nicely balanced the abundant, fine-grained, chalky tannins. It ends very tasty, with a supple, almost salty note. I think this should age magnificently in bottle. The essence of Toro in XL size." - Luis Gutiérrez
