    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bright cherry-red in color with light purple tones. The aroma is very elegant and lively aromas, rich and complex. Fresh, fruity notes (black fruits, raspberry, dark sherry), nicely integrated with spices, tobacco & toasted aromas (vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon). The palate has a silky texture, concentrated, well structured and very elegant. The finish is long and complex, with spices, tobacco, raspberries and blackberries notes.

    100% Tinta de Toro

    Critical Acclaim:

    This bold red matches ripe blackberry and currant flavors with toast, dark chocolate and oak notes. The tannins are firm and well-integrated, and the smoky mineral note is alluring. Drink now through 2016.

    Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced dark berries and fresh flowers on the nose, along with notes of cola and star anise. Lush, palate-coating blackberry and candied cherry flavors are lifted by tangy acidity and gain sweetness with air. Fine-grained tannins add shape to the lush fruit flavors and carry through a long, spicy finish. Give this a bit of air if you plan to open it any time soon.

    Second Label Wine (2/2/2011)
    The Termes Tinta de Toro is a huge wine in every way imaginable. With its deep ruby color and heavy tannins, this bottle has the potential to age well for several more years. On the nose you will find copious amounts of black cherries, raspberries, blackberries and mocha. There are also quite a few spices like clove and star anise. I like this wine and think it is an exceptional value at $28, but I would caution not to expect a typical Tempranillo style of wine even though they are cousins. In fact, if big Spanish Garnache or Rhone Valley Grenache-based wines are your style, give this Termes a try one evening. I think it will please the palate. Food Pairing Suggestions: I think you need to go big or go home with a beast of a wine like this Termes. A traditional Bolognese sauce would be an excellent accompaniment. I could also see an oxtail ragout working nicely, assuming it was not overly spicy but rather more aromatic in its preparation. I also like the idea of some well flavored classic crock pot dishes like Salisbury steak or Swiss steak with buttered noodles.
