A full, aggressive but balanced Toro. The nose is loaded with earth, bacon, leather and balsamic aromas, while the palate is rugged but right, with blackberry and savory spice flavors. Finishes smooth, a hallmark for good Toro. A step up from the commendable 2005.
Juicy and aromatic, but not particularly complex or refined. The palate deals a blast of snappy berry and plum flavors, while the finish seems racy, courtesy of slick tannins and forward acidity. Shows much more power than finesse.
Hard and earthy, with black fruit aromas that are big but closed. The palate is short, stocky and blocky, with mammoth but basic flavors that turn rubbery. Not much of a finish to speak of.
