92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2010

($70; 100% tinta de toro) Inky ruby. Knockout nose combines sweet dark fruit preserves, smoky minerals, vanilla, tobacco and dark chocolate. Suave and velvety but also juicy, with superb inner-mouth perfume and depth to its cherry-vanilla, cassis, violet and smoke flavors. Finishes with compelling sweetness, an echo of floral pastilles and suave tannins. Owner/winemaker Eduardo Garc i a told me that "the key to a fresh Toro wine is to have enough clay in your soil to retain water, otherwise the fruit has a roasted character and lacks life." (Grapes of Spain Lorton VA)
