Dehesa Gago G Toro 2006
Tasting Notes :The Telmo Rodriguez estate in Toro is named after a Spanish breed of bull that is both elegant and powerful. Telmo was one of the first to rediscover vineyards of decades-old, bush-trained vineyards. The distinctive red soils produce a Tinto de Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo) with tremendous fruit concentration, ripeness, acidity, tannins and structure.
g DEHESA GAGO ANDA 2009 TORO Nose: At first confectionary aromas filled the air, not a good start to a $30.00 bottle. Confectionary Continuing on to the plate, Double decant and pray it gets better a lot better. ½ an hour has passed and this wine has improved out of sight. Nose: Round dusty ripe fruit now showing, all most herbal with new oak and spice on the nose. 3 hours into this wine, confectionary still present, mellow musk on the nose, however the next sniff is surprisingly different, Dry herbs and plumb jam on the nose, Followed by a dry watery acid on the finish that I like a lot, this wine is so easy to drink, just add crusty bread, simple cold cuts, roast pumpkin green olives and enjoy.
External Reviews for Dehesa Gago G Toro
The deep ruby-colored 2001 Dehesa Gago (600 cases for the USA) exhibits abundant quantities of attractive black plum and cherry fruit. Typical of the low-yielding 2001 vintage, it displays more muscle and structure than previous renditions. It will benefit from 3ndash;4 more months of bottle age, and should drink well for 2ndash;3 years.
Looking to get buried by an avalanche of concentrated, jammy fruit? This will do that. Itrsquo;s a willing and ready example of young Toro, unrestrained, hot and heavy. The sweet berry fruit is a little sassy with alcohol, but thatrsquo;s what you expect from this rugged region. Tastes good and potent, but definitely on the candied side.
Firm tannins underlie a smooth texture in this silky red. Black cherry smoke tar and mineral flavors are balanced and fresh and this shows good focus and length. Drink now through 2012. -TM Wine Spectator.

Lost in the woods for a week this past summer with nothing but a Swiss Army knife and a bottle of the Dehesa Gago, I actually gained five pounds before I was found. Ripe and deeply textured to almost port-like proportions, this Spanish bruiser is truly a wine that drinks like a meal.
