Bodegas Fariña Val de Reyes Tinto Goloso 4 Años En Barrica NV

Member Review by ryanopaz:

Dark red with a rim that touches on brown. The nose is full of dried fruits and wood reminding me of a blend of an LBV port and Oloroso sherry. In the mouth the fruit is nice with a richness that fades quickly. Somewhat thin overall in relation to the fruit on the nose. Mild tannins that support the wine a bit, and not unpleasant at all, just uninsprired. Dried cherries, wood, and a somewhat short finish.

Rarely has one name been so linked to one region. Founded in 1942, this premium family wine estate is well acknowledged as the founding fathers of the region of TORO. Their 100% commitment to quality, pioneering efforts, respect for the terroir and the unparalleled knowledge and belief in the region´s varietal TINTA DE TORO has helped them gain the reputation as one of the premium producers of TORO wines. At the helm is second generation Manuel Fariña, a key figure in the Spanish wine industry. Following his winemaking studies in several places, he returned to TORO with new ideas and new technology and single handely converted the rustic backwater region of TORO into a fine wine making region following the reduction of alcohol by changing the centuries old tradition of starting the harvest on the 12th October, introduction of stainless steel and temperature controls. With Bernardo Fariña, the third generation of Fariña winemakers, currently leading the winemaking team, the efforts of the past are set to continue well into the future. Read less

Dark, inky red in color with a gorgeous nose of raisins, dried cranberries, plum and molasses. Reminds me of a Pedro Ximenez, or even an LBV port. Unfortunately, the rich and vibrant nose doesn´t match the palate, where the flavors evaporate rather quickly leaving a thin film of raisins, dried cherry and coffee. To be frank, the light, flabby body kills this wine for me.
