Winemaker Notes

Almirez represents the fruit forward expression of Tinta de Toro combined with structure, gentle tanicity, and excellent length. This wine is expressive and balanced and will leave profound memories.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This open-knit, yet chunky Toro features sweet, oaky aromas of plastic, mocha and baked plum. Concentrated and creamy on the palate, it tastes of chocolate, vanilla and savory blackberry. Full, chunky and bold but balanced on the finish; drink through 2023.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
More expensive is their 2014 Almirez, which spends much longer time in oak and comes from vines 15-65 years old in slightly higher elevations. I didn’t see much difference in this wine from its less-expensive sibling, although this one had more grilled meat and almost Provençal, Châteauneuf Du Pape-like blood characteristics, with blackberry and cassis, full body and a long, lusty finish. Some licorice also makes an appearance in this impressively constituted wine. Drink it over the next decade.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
This rich red is plush yet graceful, delivering expressive flavors of raspberry, cherry, cola and toast, supported by well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Big yet balanced, in the modern style. Drink now through 2024.

Teso la Monja, Spain
Teso la Monja Winery Image
After several years had passed of choosing the best vineyards and, at the same time, making some new plantations in privileged places, it was in 2007 when, with the skill of 10 successful years cultivating vineyards and producing famous wines, the winery Teso La Monja came about.

A wine region influenced by the presence of the river Douro, complemented by softly rugged-rolling terrain and a special microclimate with superb conditions for the growth of the grapevine. An area where the Eguren family has acquired very specific high quality north facing vineyards in the villages of the Zamora province Valdefinjas, Toro and Villabuena del Puente.

In these vineyards only one variety, the Tinta de Toro, native of this area, is grown. This variety has very low yields (around to 1,500 Kg / Ha) of small clusters and berries that synthesise a large amount of polyphenols, which makes it a favorable choice to make wine with structure and high aromatic concentration.

Spain's remote, high elevation wine zone between the regions of Bierzo and Ribera del Duero produces intense, full-bodied reds made from Tempranillo, locally called Tinta de Toro. This local variant has adapted to the region’s climatic extremes and recognizing its potential, top producers from Ribera del Duero and Rioja have invested heavily in its vineyards.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port.
