San Roman Tinta de Toro 2014
Hey there! Want a nice, light, easygoing, affable red? THEN DELETE THIS EMAIL ASAP! Holy wow!!
BUCKET LIST: Race a Ferrari. As close as we’re ever gonna get? 94-POINT, face-meltingly powerful, turbo-charged, outrageously-priced San Roman!! WINE SPECTATOR’S #41 TOP 100! Not for the shy!!
WHEW!! Heart-racing stuff for a Monday, no doubt. San Roman is a revved-up beast year after year, getting HUGE scores and critical acclaim for its massively overdelivering power and pedal-to-the-metalness. OK, enough of the racing metaphors, but this truly is a deeply extracted, concentrated, dark, brooding BEAST, with tons of lavish sweet, spicy oak and a legit PLUSH, round velvety texture. Blackberry pie for days, with a finish that careens around your mouth for a full minute after you swallow -- just HEADY Tempranillo that will impress.
Finally...the price! Best on this planet. We suggest you get a few, make something hearty enough to stand up to this bad boy, and lavish yourself with vinous pleasure. Amazing we got any at all….hurry to grab a few!!

About The Producer
The average age of vineyards is 35 years old, some of the oldest vines were planted ungrafted because this area was not affected by phylloxera. The soils are loose, stony or sandy depending on the areas as with clay subsoil where the plant can obtain water in times of drought. The varieties and plots are vinified separately to respect the characteristics of the different vineyards.Our wines are structured and elegant, balanced, with refined tannins and deep minerality.
