External Reviews for Cal Blanca Toro
Glass-staining ruby. Highly pungent aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant preserves, violet and licorice. Impressively fresh in the mouth, displaying zesty dark berry flavors and a strong undercurrent of minerals. The floral quality repeats on the finish and lingers with very good tenacity.
The opaque purple-colored 2007 Cal Blanca is 100% Tempranillo sourced from 80- to 100-year-old vines. It was aged in seasoned French oak for six months followed by three months in 5000-liter concrete tanks to provide unoaked oxygenation. It delivers a nose of roasted mineral, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a structured wine with exceptional richness, outstanding concentration, and a lengthy finish. Drink this remarkable value over the next six years.
