2012 Yaso Toro Tempranillo
I obviously had to buy this one. 93 point rated from Parker and only $10 at Costco. Plus I’m a huge fan of Toro wines since they generally deliver ridiculous value for the money. And this one follows suit, although I can’t go as high as 93 points.
Medium to semi-full dark on the pour, not super thick in appearance, but the flavor is all there. The nose is really pleasant; grassy with a little mint and clove, a bit different which is refreshing. Body is medium to full, and flavors are packaged perfectly – a bit of boisterous blueberry, red licorice, and ripe cherry that comes through more as the wine gets some air. Finishes strong, lasting, sticks to the mouth. A great food wine.
This is a real treat for $10. And I’m excited because I found quite a few reasonably priced Spanish bottles hitting my Costco on my last visit. More on those to come but this wine is great way to get started in this region.
