I get lots of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, excellent finish and complexity for a $20 wine, not a rioja like wine with no cherry fruit to be found but a wonderful companion to red meats and what value!!
Such a gorgeous nose on this well-aged, high-value Toro, the dark fruit (ripe blackberry, blackcurrant) providing enormous depth while taking a back seat to cinnamon, clove, vanilla, buttercream, milk chocolate, and even a hint of ginger, much of this replaying on the palate. It suggests sweetness, but it still has plenty of tannic structure. If anything, it may be a little too much, overdone, and a bit rough on the finish, but there's no denying the flavour impact, and the emergence of tart red berries and new leather adds to the complexity. An excellent example of warm-climate Tempranillo.
