producer: Bodegas Frontaura, Dominio de Valdecasa
region: Toro – a badass region where grapes get concentrated from the intense heat and Tempranillo’s called “Tinta de Toro”
yum factors: blackberry/raspberry along with some tobacco, leather and cocoa all mixing up into a rich, deep wine with good tannins and a long finish to savor it all. Good stuff for a cozy night! We had this at a productive writing group session, so it probably also makes you smart.
