Bodega Matsu ‘El Picaro’ Toro 2015

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 31-Oct-2016
Very full, dark, deep, purple-hued black-red colour, a little lighter edged, youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh with bright aromas of dark raspberry, plum and boysenberry fruit aromas along with some jam and floral-lifted whole berry fermentation fragrances and a little oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate is sweet and juicy with flavours of ripe raspberries, boysenberries and plums and lifted, jammy whole berry fermentation notes. The fruit richness is balanced and supported by powdery tannin structure and the acidity is integrated and soft. The palate is carried by some alcoholic power, leading the wine to a ripe, raspberry, boysenberry and jam-nuanced finish with fine-grained grip. This is a sweet, ripe-fruited Toro red with raspberry, plum and jammy notes on a fine-grained palate with some alcohol drive. Match with barbecued and roasted red meat dishes over the next 4 years. 100% Tempranillo from 90 y.o. vineyards fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 3 months in French oak. 17.5/20 Nov 2016 RRP $24.99
