The 2010 vintage is considered to be of exceptional quality and
balance. Prima offers refined, concentrated fruit and is fresher
than ever, with lower yields than in 2009 mainly due to occasional
frosts during the spring. The cool September nights have preserved excellent acidity and mature tannins thanks to a perfect end to maturation with sunny and dry weather.
Blend: 90% Tinta de Toro, 10% Grenache
"While this is a bit scratchy and rugged up front, that's Toro in a nutshell. In the mouth, things are built like a brick house, while flavors of cassis and berry come with a medicinal note and chocolaty richness. Licorice, pepper and more chocolate flavor define the finish on this stout Tinta de Toro. Drink through 2018."
"Deep ruby. Powerful dark fruit aromas are complemented by notes of licorice, dark chocolate and candied violet. Ripe and fleshy, like an '09, yielding intense cassis and bitter cherry flavors and a suave floral nuance. Finishes chewy and long, with excellent clarity and soft tannins."
International Wine Cellar
"This polished red exhibits harmonious flavors of black cherry, chocolate, licorice and mineral, with well-integrated tannins and fine acidity. Not showy, but retains depth and focus. Tinta de Toro and Garnacha."
