Sabor Real Crianza Vinas Centenarias Toro 2005

Member Review by Maladucata:

An excellent vino da tavola. I can get it locally for $12.99. Unusually fruity for a tempranillo. I am suspecting that there is another grape varietal lurking in the taste palate. The wine's label is not explicit regarding the grape varietal(s) in the bottle. Does anyone have definitive information in this regard?

Another incredible value from Spain. The Toro region is fortunate to have a quantity of very old vine vineyards. This Crianza is produced from Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grapes from 100 year old vines. Several growers from the region got together to produce the wine knowing they had amazing fruit. And because they own the vines and the production the price is amazingly low. The Wine Advocate scored this wine 91 points and said “The 2005 Vinas Centenarias, as the name implies, comes from vines over 100 years of age. Purple-colored, it offers up a complex perfume of pain grille, violets, mineral, spice box, black cherry and blackberry. Bigger, richer, and more sweetly-fruited than its younger colleague, it would benefit from 2-3 years of additional cellaring. Balanced, lengthy, and altogether hedonistic, it should drink well through 2015.”
