Bullish Tempranillo by Finca Sobreño


finca_sobrenoThe Toro (meaning “bull”) region in northern Spain, produces wines of tremendous concentration that more than a few times can turn off the aficionado, if the drink lacks finesse. Finca Sobreño’s Tempranillo is a good example of what a well made Toro wine can offer. The appealing ruby red color follows with aromas of violets and strawberry marmalade. Full body and dense palate with concentrated red fruit and a vegetal streak. Tannins are massive and a bit raspy, showing best with steak or barbequed meats. The finish is long, ridden with fruit and caramel.
