|2009: 87 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Bright ruby-red. Fresh, straightforward aromas and flavors of red berries and cracked pepper. A taut, energetic midweight that shows good clarity and picks up sweetness with air. Finishes with good cut and focus, leaving slightly tart red fruit notes behind. This would be nice with a light chill."
2009: 87 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red wines begin with the 2009 Sangre de Toro, a blend of 65% Garnacha and 35% Carinena aged for 6 months in seasoned French and American oak. Aromas of underbrush, brier, and black cherry compose the inviting nose of this ripe, savory, mouth-filling effort. Drink this very good value over the next 3-4 years. "
