Piedra Azul Estancia Piedra Toro 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

<br/> Tinto de Toro is the local synonym for Riojas famous Tempranillo grape. The grapes trademark generosity of fruit and elegance of tannins are clearly evidenced, together with a complexity and power rare in a wine of this price pointl.The fruits are from the darker end of the spectrum with morello cherry and blackcurrant to the fore, underwritten by hints of liquorice and dark chocolate. Lovely with casseroles or roasts. Toro has long shown potential, but for too long produced wines where alcohol has masked all else. The tide is turning; this is a super wine, and great value to boot.<br/><br/> (Simon Field MW - BBR Buyer)<br/><br/>
