Telmo Rodriguez Gago Toro 2007
Editorial Reviews for Telmo Rodriguez Gago Toro
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 100 percent Monastrell (Mourvedre), not Grenache!
