Torres Sangre de Toro Tempranillo . Spain 2007
rich garnet color, balanced nose of red fruit, toast and spice. fun in a glass on the patio at an evening BBQ.
A nice, rounded tempranillo from the Catalunya region of Spain. Soft fruit on the mid palate and nice tannins.
Nice, easy drinking tempranillo that goes well by on its own or easily paired with meat-based dishes. Nicely balanced, subtle tannins, dark fruits, earthy, and herbal. 13.5% alcohol. Comes with plastic black bull decorative. At $8.99 it's a great value wine.
$6.99 Capsicum, hint of ripe tomato, old cigarette butt, dusty spice and dirt. Fantastic color as always! 2nd) Muted red fruit, pencil, cigarette (2 hours later) 1st) Lively and juicy red fruit. Pretty balanced, a little tannic...just enough to stand up to a wide range of food. Pairs exceptionally well to very-spicy Asian food. Nice smooth finish, lingering aftertaste. Glowy, creamy aftertaste. Put this wine on your budget Go-To List, for the price, it over-delivers!
i had a bad day at work and really wanted to try something different - a little naughty hahaha i saw the black bull hanging from the bottle but i was turned off when i saw the screw cap...i questioned the class of the wine - screw cap wine bottles give me a bad visual - but it cost 10 bucks?! my wine merchant pointed out a 30 dollar bottle of chardonnay with a screw cap - 'nuff said i gave it a whirl - after all i was feeling rebellious...ya'know it's a great wine! it's deep , rich and bit spicy - licorice and pepper! smooth & classy i'll buy the bigger bottle next time - i want more!
I like both the Luzon an Luzon Verde and tried this on a recommendation of a wine shop. I found it less smooth and slightly more tangy than the luzon.
The color is deep.. very deceiving. First sip... was spicy and somewhat interesting... for only a moment or two and then the flavors fell completely flat for me. Leaving behind something that was bitter, ashy and not very nice. You get what you pay for in this case!
