in Laguardia averaging 30 years of age. It is fermented in open stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak barrels for one year. It’s a little closed and requires some time to start showing its nose. The palate is explosive, with clean acidity and balance, pure, hedonistic with great depth. It slowly develops some minty, balsamic aromas coating the red fruit, with even notes of fennel. 150,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2014-2022. "

WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 POINTS - "Everything about this highly functional Rioja is nice. The nose is fresh, minerally and shows complexities like cinnamon aromas and herbs. The palate is snappy and racy, but not shear or acidic. Flavors of plum, berry and oak are pure and bold, while the finish is dry, lightly toasted and shows minerality and coffee notes. Drink through 2019. "

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 91 POINTS - - "Assertive red fruit and floral scents are brightened by a minerally nuance. Spicy, penetrating and gently sweet, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a touch of rose. The long finish features gentle tannic grip and very good spicy lift, leaving a cherry pit note behind."

BODEGA DE EDGAR 10 TORO
$36.95
Quantity

Last year, winemaker Edgar Torres brought us a couple wines that were simply amazing! This year is no different, other than the fact that he has a new wine that is really gets us excited! Read More...
His latest bottling is called "Toro de Paso", a blend of 37% Tempranillo, 26% Grenache, and 37% Merlot. The Tempranillo and Grenache are a couple of the primary grapes in many Spanish reds, and coming from this Central Coast region, calling this wine Toro de Paso just made sense. From the first pour, we were hooked, as this wine displays an intense garnet color with a purple hue, and aromas of violets, spice, dried cherries, strawberries, plums, and violets. Similar flavors follow suit, where they are joined by blueberries, blackberries, minerals, grilled meat, and just the right amount of tannin. Rich, juicy, forward, and still retaining good structure, this wine is tasty now, and should continue to drink well for another 5-7 years. Could this Spanish/Bordeaux blend be the next big style to come out of Paso Robles?...We think other wineries should take note!

banks of the River Duero in themid-1980s that seemed to bring together the ideal conditions to become one of the best vineyards of the region. Ithad a gentle south-facing slope that ended in the river and different soils composed of gravel, clay and gypsum thatpromised to produce the nuances needed to create complex wines from Tempranillo. The results of his discoveryspeak from the bottle and more than a few critics have heard the call.

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 91 POINTS "Dark ruby. Explosive aromas of dark berry and cherry preserves, with smoke, game and violet accents. Plush and expansive, offering spicy cherry and cassis flavors and notes of candied flowers and bitter chocolate. Vanilla and cracked pepper build with air and carry through a long, sappy and gently tannic finish. Incidentally, the 2008 bottling of this wine is drinking very well right now, with plenty of juicy dark berry character and brightening minerality; no rush to drink it but no crime to do so now, either."

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "Juicy black cherry and red plum flavors mingle with notes of licorice, black pepper and toast in this firm, fresh red. Displays enough structure for food but remains balanced and lively."

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS "The 2009 Condado de Haza Crianza undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrique where it ages for 15 months. It offers a lovely ripe, yet controlled bouquet of raspberry, kirsch and incense that blossom with aeration. You can almost smell that Ribera warmth! The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins over-layering a sweet core of red fruit. It is playful and joyful, belying its fine structure and citric fresh finish. This is a wonderful wine from Condada de Haza."

but its opulent red berry, cherry and dark chocolate flavors are enlivened by strong minerality. As deeply concentrated and palate-staining as this wine is, it shows unlikely elegance. In fact, this reminds me a little of a modern Bordeaux The finish is sweet, smoky and very long."

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - " The 2007 Vino del Olivo (named after an 800-year-old olive tree) is a blend of 88% Tempranillo and 12% Graciano. It has a hedonistic, flamboyant bouquet of macerated red cherries and crushed strawberry, with hints of marmalade and fresh fig underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with a very polished, oaky entry. There are plush red fruits with cassis and blueberry cut through with crisp acidity leading to a tensile, velvety-smooth finish. It is a decadent, but composed Rioja."

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - " Black cherry, plum, tobacco and loam flavors mingle in this broad red. This has slightly chewy tannins, but remains fresh."

Sweet and open-knit red fruit flavors gain weight and depth with air, picking up licorice and cocoa powder qualities and a touch of floral pastilles.

LA TIMES WINE OF THE WEEK! (3/19/14) - "One of Spains great Bodegas - Still family owned to this day, dating back to 1861. Don Julio Faustino is at the helm. Faustino is possibly the best known Rioja around the world and Faustino 1 the Gran Reserva certainly sets the benchmarks for others to follow."

The evidence is in and the verdict is undeniable. The Faustino Gran Reserva offers one of the most incredible wine values on the planet. Where else can you get a 97 point-rated wine crafted by a legendary producer, which is aged for more than a decade in their cellar-all for under $30.00? Did we mention 2001 was a great vintage in Rioja? The price of admission for one of the world’s greatest wines is extraordinarily inexpensive. This wine is beguiling, complex and elegant. It remains fresh with nice fruit and delicious, savory flavors. This wine will age, but is drinking beautifully right now.
