|TORO BRAVO TEMPRANILLO/MERLOT 2017 DO Valencia
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
||WINES & COMPANY
|Bright fairly deep intense purple colour. Fresh, very slightly spicy, gently juicy, plum-cherry purée nose with some sandalwood notes. Dry, medium to medium-light bodied, bright, tangy, fresh, plum-cherry flavours with a lingering, sandalwood-tinged, crisp finish. TONY ASPLER / 88.5-points / BEST BUY - Deep ruby in colour; spicy, black fruits on the nose with evident oak; medium-bodied, dry, red plum and mocha chocolate flavours with a crisp finish. A tasty bargain at the price. This recently launched 2017 stainless steel blend of 60% Tempranillo and 40% Merlot has 13% alcohol and 9 g/L residual sugar with a new lot number L9049 on the back label. Screwcap closure. Unlike our objective 88.5-points based on internationally-accredited evaluations systems using the professional ISO-glass, the Vintages Catalogue quoted 96-points uses a one-of-a-kind, value-based system that cannot be compared to any other score.

|Tasting Note: '...Black Forest cake on the nose, followed by a flood of flavour-cherries in dark chocolate, tobacco, earth, and coffee-with a dusting of dark cocoa powder that lingers. Medium-bodied with a seam of mouthwatering acidity, this red offers outstanding value.' Score: 96 (Carolyn Evans Hammond, Toronto Star, Jan 24, 2019)
