Review
This juicy red offers black cherry, chocolate and light herbal flavors, with light tannins and crisp acidity. A slight bitterness gives it a refreshing finish.

Rating
2008: 86 Points - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Gran Sangre de Toro has a tad more Syrah in the blend than in previous years. Aged in French oak for 12 months, it offers raspberry, small dark cherries and a touch of graphite on the nose. The palate is a little pinched on the entry, though it unfurls towards the fresh, dry finish with notes of blackberry, allspice, rosemary and sage. Drink now-2015. "

2008: 85 Points - Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast: " Pointy and sharp at first, with earthy, dry aromas. Edgy feeling, with heat and scour to go with peppery, herbal berry flavors. Finishes mossy and warm, with a minty burn. Improves with airing."


Technical notes
Made using 65% Garnacha Tinta and 35% Cariñena and aged for 6 months in French and American oak casks.
