This wine is highly intense in color and depth, cherry red in tone with purplish hues. It is broad, very clean, expressive and elegant on the nose, with a great fruit intensity expressed in a subtle way. It has a great structure and a good tannic presence in the mouth and is persistent, fresh and very pleasant to the palate.
95, James Suckling:
This is one of the best if not the best red from Toro with such finesse and balance. The rustic character of the region with bark and hot stone. Medium to full body, long and flavorful.
91, Wine Spectator:
Tobacco, leather and tea flavors frame a core of cherry and dried fig notes in this red, with firm tannins and orange peel acidity showing an austere character, though this has balance and depth. Drink now through 2028.
