External Reviews for Torres Sangre de Toro
Wine and Food: Superb with roasts, casseroles, game and traditional Spanish meat dishes. Tasting Notes: Deep ruby colour with a hint of ochre. Rich complex Mediterranean aromas with exuberant notes of spices and blackberries. Velvety tannins are noted on the palate with elegant flavours of liquorice and small dark forest fruits (blueberries and blackcurrants).
Abundantly fruity aroma suggestive of wild raspberries, with an earthy hint of spiciness. Generous and smooth on the palate.
Good full red. Complex if slightly reduced aromas of raspberry, bacon fat, spices and meat, with a hint of surmaturiteacute;. Superripe and sweet, with liqueur-like red fruits and spices; a bit roasted but decent acidity gives definition to the flavors. Firmly structured and spicy on the back.
A perennial Best Buy, Sangre de Toro always delivers a quality red-wine experience that does not bowl you over. Here the aromas are light and jammy, with strawberry. The body is medium in weight and intensity, with pure but basic cherry, raspberry and plum flavors. Like all other parts of the wine, the finish is easy and clean, with carry-over flavors of berry fruit.
This juicy red offers black cherry, chocolate and light herbal flavors, with light tannins and crisp acidity. A slight bitterness gives it a refreshing finish. Carintilde;ena and Garnacha. Drink now through 2009.
Medium red. High-toned aromas of cherry, red berries, mint and black pepper. Juicy and sappy, with complex flavors of blueberry, raspberry, leather and spices. A supple wine with decent weight in the mouth. A distinctly Spanish version of a Cote du Rhone, showing plenty of personality.
Stocky and warm, with mild baked-fruit aromas and a hint of bramble. This venerable table wine is made from 65% Garnacha and 35 Carintilde;ena, and from 2005 itrsquo;s pretty much on the money. Expect earthy, mildly brambly flavors, lively acidity and soft tannins. Good for a wide range of simple foods and appetizers.
Sangre de Toro is one of the most well-known wines in Spain. The name was inspired by Bacchus, Roman god of wine, known in ancient times as "Son of the Bull."
