Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Torremoron is an unoaked cuvee of 100% Tempranillo from 60- to 90-year-old vines. Medium ruby-colored, it has a terrific perfume of wild berries including raspberry, strawberry, and cherry. On the palate the wine is youthful, very concentrated and structured. The finish is long and fruity. It seems unlikely that many people will cellar a $10 wine but this amazing effort should continue to evolve for 1-2 years. Drink it with pleasure over the next 3-4 years. It is an outstanding value."

About Vinos Torremoron:

Torremorón, made in the small town of Quintanamanvirgo, is a great example of an artisanal, handcrafted wine rather than a commercial wine with no personality or soul. Just west of the villages of Anguix and La Horra and north of Pedrosa de Duero and Roa, Quintanamanvirgo is well situated in the north central area of Ribera. Many of Ribera’s top bodegas farm vineyards here in the alluvial, sandy and clay-heavy soils in vineyard sites that are optimally located at altitude. Torremorón is crafted in this small village (population: 94) whose people are very proud of their common wine heritage; everyone in town works for the winery. Quintanamanvirgo has two businesses: the bar and the winery. If you ever want to experience and taste the authentic personality of Ribera del Duero, head directly for this town and ask for Fernando de la Cal. When you meet him, ask him to show you his vineyards and his family cave where wine was made in the 1800’s. Made with 80-100 year old vines, Torremorón is a genuine wine, one of the most pure expressions of Tempranillo that you’ll come across.
