2014 Toro Tinto Tempranillo

The wine name: Toro Tinto
Toro means bull in Spanish. Tinto means red or dyed. Spain’s Rioja region is home to the Tempranillo grape, although in other regions it is known as Tinto de Toro, or Tinta de Toro. In honor of these ancient names and of the many courageous Spanish bulls we simply called it Toro Tinto.

Visual
Scarlet red with nice violet tones.

Aroma
Dark ripe cherry with a hint of root beer (yes really).

Taste
Dry with fruit forward notes of blackberry and cherry. Hints of smoke and vanilla.

Barrel: New French Oak, 30%
Toro Tinto was aged in wooden barrels and monitored closely to impart a 30% new French oak taste. This foundation gives the wine a luscious blend of spice, vanilla and slight char.

Pairings:
This is a delicious wine to serve with paella, pasta or rice dishes. It goes great with appetizers like sheep cheeses and green or dark olives. Toro Tinto is a perfect wine to serve with lamb dishes.
