Huge body, I'll call it "chewy," with very complex flavours. I tasted some plum and black licorice, and other thick flavours that I can't quite figure out. I wonder if it might be much better in 10 years?
External Reviews for Almirez Toro Tierra de Sabor
Generous yet focused, this modern red delivers black cherry, currant, licorice and mineral flavors, framed by toast and coffee notes. Offers a sleek, firm texture and a long, floral finish. Drink now through 2018.
Even richer is the 2010 Almirez, which comes from a vineyard planted at an altitude of 2,300 feet. Yields were 18 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine was aged 12 months in mostly French oak (30% new). This fabulous, inky/purple-colored wine exhibits notes of violets, graphite, licorice, blackberries and cassis. Full-bodied and rich with silky tannins as well as abundant minerality, this super-rich, full-throttle 2010 can be enjoyed over the next decade.
