Spanish Wine Review

One of the finest values in fine wines I have seen in a few years. This is a remarkable bottle for both its impressive weight and finesse from the Toro region of Spain. Painted with lush vanilla and oak-driven caramel, this red holds aggressive tannins—sandalwood and lavender in the mid-palate with mocha notes and full-bodied richness. The finish turns smoky, earthy, and floral. Very impressive.

  1. Then some pretty aromas of white peach and lychee. Buckets of it. Its variety and origin is obvious. Amongst half a dozen Savvys from Australia, it stood out like a durian in a tin of two fruits.
