The Termes Tinta de Toro is a huge wine in every way imaginable. With its deep ruby color and heavy tannins, this bottle has the potential to age well for several more years. On the nose you will find copious amounts of black cherries, raspberries, blackberries and mocha. There are also quite a few spices like clove and star anise. I like this wine and think it is an exceptional value at $28, but I would caution not to expect a typical Tempranillo style of wine even though they are cousins. In fact, if big Spanish Garnache or Rhone Valley Grenache-based wines are your style, give this Termes a try one evening. I think it will please the palate. Food Pairing Suggestions: I think you need to go big or go home with a beast of a wine like this Termes. A traditional Bolognese sauce would be an excellent accompaniment. I could also see an oxtail ragout working nicely, assuming it was not overly spicy but rather more aromatic in its preparation. I also like the idea of some well flavored classic crock pot dishes like Salisbury steak or Swiss steak with buttered noodles.
