A ripe yet fresh Toro showing fresh blackberries and cherries with hints of rosemary, bay leaves and iodine. Full body, soft, concentrated tannins and a long finish. Drink now.

The 2014 Vetus matured in oak barrels (50/50 French and American) for one year, and the oak is nicely integrated with the fruit, with aromas of ripe cherries and plums intermixed with some sweet spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied with round tannins and juicy fruit. 15,347 bottles produced.

This wine's ripe plum and berry aromas feature an oaky note of bacon. On the palate, it's choppy and aggressive with tannic bite. Dark fruit flavors are bolstered by oaky spice, tobacco and chocolate hints that persist long on the finish. A texbook Toro wine.
