Earthy, rich and black as night, with roasted blackberry aromas that draw you in. Then the palate keeps you there, and even if it runs a bit hard and tannic, the integrity and flavors of coconut, roasted berry and coffee are fine and dandy. Boisterous and big, but that’s Toro for you.
Earth, tree bark, dry spice and finally some plum and berry aromas appear on the nose. The palate is astringent but also bright and structured, with plum, raspberry and herbal flavors. Warming and tannic all the way to the very end. A very nice and forceful Toro.
Dark berry, spice cake, savory leather and roasted meat aromas give this a deep, brooding, heavy exterior. The mouth has acceptable acidic kick for Toro, while the flavors are saucy and meaty, with licorice and earth notes. Not overly fruity or lively; it’s more meaty and thick.
After opening with prickly aromas, this medium-bodied Toro settles on fresh and edgy, with crisp red plum flavors topped with a touch of chocolaty oak. It’s zesty and shows drive on the finish.
