Rot Dehesa Gago Tinta de Toro Telmo Rodriguez 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright red. Spicy red berries and cherry on the nose, with notes of cracked pepper and dried rose adding complexity. Tangy and focused, offering slightly dry red fruit flavors and a late note of licorice. Offers good finishing lift, cut and tangy persistence. - Stephen Tanzer

This is how the business started, originally under the name of Compañía de Vinos de La Granja. The name was a declaration of intent: it made it clear that the company would be producing more wines in the future and contained a homage to La Granja, the famous glassworks, a centre of outstanding Spanish craftwork that has all but disappeared.

At first this has an attractive and assertive green nettle tone which then yields to a shale mineral component and subtle notes of horse and black licorice that accent the lovely almost candied yet very clear black raspberry liquor fruit. Smooth and rich on the mouth with a leanness that is attractive and a cleansing quality to the acid and tannin that doesn’t obscure the herb and hot dry soil tinged black raspberry fruit. This shows a touch more tannin on the back end that gives this a bit of rusticity but the tannins are wonderfully crisp with just a hint of refreshing astringency Full throttle and eminently drinkable, this is neither particularly complex nor simple, just terrific. 91pts

This was really an exceptionally unique and standout wine. It has it's own character - very similar to the Yalumba Barossa I often drink.

This wine is made entirely from the Tinto de Toro grape, better known as Tempranillo. The “G” is fermented in stainless steel, allowing its pristine aromas of black plum, cherry and spice to be perfectly preserved.
