Rubbery and dark smelling, with a floral/blueberry element. The palate is thick and wall-to-wall, with sweet blackberry and cherry flavors. Mild but fruity on the finish, with some heat and chocolate. Also a little bit grabby in terms of tannic grip.
Roasted berry, marzipan, prune, spice and earth are rolled into a solid whole on the bouquet, while the palate rides on the heavy side with grating tannins and deep but clumsy flavors of blackberry, raisin and fruitcake. Smooth but not complex or demanding. Chewy and bulky, which isn’t uncommon for Toro.
