The Tinta de Toro varietal is a clone of the Tempranillo varietal, but it has a thicker skin, lower acidity, and deeper blue-black color. Tinta de Toro produces bolder colored red wines compared to Tempranillo, with powerful tannins.
The 2009 Monte Hiniesta is a purple/black wine from a great vintage in Toro. It was aged for 9-10 months in first and second year American oak. Brooding black fruits, cigar box, Asian spices, and an earthy minerality inform the nose of this smooth, layered bruiser. A bit more complexity will come with another year or two in the bottle.
