2013 Bodegas Teso la Monja Almirez

92
"Even more powerful and rich is the 2013 Almirez, an opaque purple wine made from 100% Tinta de Toro from vineyards planted at 2,300 feet (the highest in all of Toro). The wine has a fabulous opaque purple color, notes of blackberry, blueberry and cassis, licorice, graphite and truffle. Deep, rich, full-bodied and powerful with moderate tannin, this wine was aged 12 months in about 30% new French oak. Drink it over the next decade.

Teso la Monja is a rather large winery and vineyard space in Toro (321 acres of primarily north-facing vineyards) planted in sandy soils with gravel and underlying clay. The vineyards are old, dating from 1880-1940. The two wines I tasted that qualified as values are both outstanding."
