"One of Spain's great full-force, modern-style wines, this excels despite the marginal 2008 vintage. It's open-knit and soft on the nose, with ladels of spice, graphite, and black fruit aromas. It feels fresh, balanced, and not overly tannic, with strapping blackberry, coffee, chocolate, spice, and tobacco flavors all rolled into a fabulous whole. Licorice, espresso, and amaro notes grace the padded finish. Drink now - 2018. -M.S." (12/12)

"Deep ruby. Intense, oak-spiced aromas of cherry-vanilla, blueberry, pipe tobacco and mocha. Suave, palate-coating dark fruit flavors show very good concentration, especially for this difficult vintage, and pick up smokiness and floral nuances with aeration. Finishes silky and long, with lasting notes of candied violet and anise." (09/12)

"This red marries depth and balance, offering rich plum and blackberry fruit accented with espresso and toast. The tannins are full but well-integrated, the acidity gentle. Seamless, in the modern style. Drink now through 2016. 5,000 cases made. -TM" (09/12)
"Bodegas y Vinedos Maurodos owns 55 hectares in the villages of Villaester and San Roman de Hornija, planted mainly with Tinta de Toro, which come from the same family as Tempranillo, but adapted to Toro over centuries. This adaptation has lead to smaller berries which in turn lead to deeper color and more intense aroma and structure than typical of Tempranillo from other regions. It is possible to separate two different soil areas, in Villaester the soil has sand and clay with some gravels, while in San Roman the soil is more stony."
"Grapes mature sooner in San Roman than Villaester. The vines range in age up to 70 years old and are pruned to grow as bushes rather than on vertical trellises. On the vines the grapes hang low under a rounded canopy of leaves that protects them from scorching summer temperatures. This type of pruning concentrates the flavor of the grapes as it naturally limits the yield of grapes for each vine." -Winery
