2016 Teso La Monja 'Almirez' Toro Spain
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.
The 2016 Almirez is brilliant! Made from 100% Tinta de Toro that spent 14 months in 30% new French oak, this full-bodied, concentrated 2016 is loaded with notions of blueberries, blackberries, cedar pencil, and cured meats. With terrific depth of fruit, notable purity, and a sexy, seamless style, it’s one of those knockout wines that way over-delivers!

This offers plenty of ripe dark plums and berries with rich notes of dark chocolate and spicy oak. Toro’s powerful and direct structure is all on show here. Drink this from 2020.
