Michel Torino Shiraz Don David Reserve 2011

Member Review by JenniferT:

Fairly fragrant, with lots of blackberry, raspberry and an undertone of something herbaceous. On the palate this one is JUICY, with lots of blackberry, cassis and jam. Also some clove and just a hint of something leathery. Lots of bright acidity. Some lovely subtle notes of vanilla and oak on the finish. Moderate length. Good value here, for sure.

The Winery was founded in 1892 when the French brothers David and Salvador, planted the first vines. They were attracted by the benign climate, the beauty of the landscape and Cafayate Valley unique Terroir, good for quality grapes production. The winery took it's name from the legend of El Esteco City. According to this tale, Esteco was an opulent city in the north of Argentina. Its buildings, covered with silver shone and its people dressed in gold. In 1692 an earthquake buried the city and his its treasures. In the late 1970's the company bought the El Esteco estate and recovered the hidden treasure. We discovered the riches came from the soil. In honour to the legend, El Esteco produces the best grapes used for Michel Torino top export wines. Read less
