Flores de Cerezo Tinta de Toro 2015
VM90: "Vivid ruby. A highly aromatic nose offers powerful scents of primary red fruits, candied flowers and botanical herbs, carrying a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy and broad on the palate, offering concentrated red fruit preserve flavors and a touch of sweet mocha. Shows good clarity and punch on the nicely persistent finish, which is framed by supple, even tannins."
Flores de Cerezo means “cherry blossom” and comes from the Toro region in central Spain. This is 100% Tinta de Toro, or Tempranillo, from the Volvoreta property’s high elevation vines. It’s said that the fruit from this property has “above average” antioxidants! This is juicy and smoky, with tons of red fruit and a persistent finish. Aged for 5 months in French oak barrels. Organic.
