Label   Shelf Talker   Fact Sheet

Description: This wine is produced from the single, more than 70 year old, Senda del Lobo vineyard. It is located right next to the winery on the outskirts of San Roman de la Hornija. Soils are composed of limey clay with sand and large stones. Yields are around 15hl/ha. Grapes are selectively hand harvested and sorted again at the winery prior to processing. A 3 day cold soak is followed by alcoholic (14 days) and ML (21 days) in stainless steel tanks. After 12 months in new French oak barrels there is a selection of barrels with selected lots, which comprise this wine seeing an additional 5 months of aging in barrels; a total of 17 months in oak. Fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered. This wine is “Viki´s soul”, grapes that come from single, unique and very old parcel, made only the exceptional years during which grapes show balance, elegance and freshness above all.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 93 FOR THE 2010 VINTAGE
Opaque ruby. Ripe, smoky cherry and blackberry scents are enlivened by bright mineral and floral notes. Dense, chewy and broad, with dark berry and bitter cherry flavors lifted by suave oak spice and mineral nuances. Youthful tannins give shape and grip to the long, smoky finish, with the cherry note echoing. This youthful wine has the depth and structure to repay at least a decade more of cellaring.
Wine Spectator 91 FOR THE 2010 VINTAGE
Black cherry, cranberry and currant fruit has a crisp edge in this muscular red, with espresso, mineral and loam notes adding a savory element. Firm and focused. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases made.
Wine Enthusiast 95 FOR THE 2012 VINTAGE - EDITOR'S CHOICE
Tightly wound, layered, moderately tannic and oozing excellence, this is a fantastic high-end Toro from the superb 2012 vintage. The minerally, toasty aroma of blackberry is stylish and shows a balsamic note. Flavors of licorice, sweet balsamic vinegar, chocolate and toasty blackberry continue on a long, deep, complex finish. Drink this ace-level red from 2017–2028.
