Cal Blanca Toro exhibits an opaque purple-color. It delivers a nose of roasted mineral, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a structured wine with exceptional richness, outstanding concentration and a lengthy finish.
This wine shows the brawny and bold black fruits, violet and mineral character of Toro, but with distinctive aromatic freshness, uncommon balance and licorice notes. Pair this structured, elegantly powerful red with grilled steak, prime rib, beef roast and dishes with similar heft of flavor, including braised pork shoulder and venison, which the sweet tannins of Toro should compliment well. For more casual foods, beef or pork empanadas, BBQ beef, brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, and burritos will all pair well.
"Bright ruby. Seductive aromas of raspberry, potpourri and licorice, with a note of white pepper adding lift and vivacity. Sappy and broad, offering pliant red and dark fruit and floral pastille flavors and showing no excess fat. Finishes seamless and energetic, with impressive tenacity and echoing floral notes."
