In the word of the winemaker, "The identity of the terroir of Toro. Elegant, with great balance and a long silky finish".
Deep colored wine with elegance and great persistence. It’s no wonder this wine scored so highly with Mr. Parker!
Awarded 93+ by Luis Gutiérrez:
"I tasted with Marcos Eguren, who considers 2013 and 2014 easier vintages in Toro than in Rioja, two years that produced wines with great freshness. The wines are powerful, faithful to the style of the place, but also searching for elegance. The oak is much better integrated than in the past, and it feels like the cooler vintages are much better for that; a wine from 2012 was distinctly oakier than any of the 2013s or 2014s, even if those were much younger and some of them very recently bottled. The 2014s are lusher and rounder, and the 2013s are fresher and more vertical. These are wines for fans of the style, they tend to be similar and have the same profile, so the price difference is sometimes hard to justify, but within that style, they are among the best. You need patience and/or powerful food... or both!"
