This year, which was described as a very good one, started with high temperatures that did not lower until the end of November. There were also quite low water reserves. In the early spring, temperatures began to rise, leading to the first bleedings of the vines. The beginning of the growth cycle did not present any major upheavals, except for the low humidity due to the lack of rain during the winter. During May, the vines began to develop their buds, causing the flowering during the first week of June. When they started to ripen, the drought and the stress on the vines was evident. At the end of August, there a certain amount of rain helped to hydrate the bunches, which helped to collect the healthiest grapes.As a result, we have a year with wines of a concentrated profile and some acidity. Perfect in their youth and with a medium ageing capacity.
San Román 2014 is a concentrated, powerful and elegant Toro wine. This year is distinguished by the good ripening and acidity of the grapes. A muscular wine, where the black fruit stands out with the spices of the Tinta de Toro and those of the barrel. The months it spends in barrels round this wine and give it finer tannins. Ideal to drink now or to save for a few years.
The 2013 vintage, rated as a very good one, began in a complicated way. In the early spring, in April and May, temperatures were low and there were heavy rains, significantly delaying the start of the growth cycle. This resulted in late flowering and therefore later ripening. Before the harvest, there was a considerable amount of rain, which produced an interspersed harvest.After a cold and rainy year, the profile of the wines they have produced are less concentrated than usual. Fresher and with a good acidity.
A nice dark cherry colour. Abundant tear. Nose
A very fragrant and expressive wine. Aromas of red fruits with black fruit, cinnamon, snuff and memories of toasted wood. Taste
Pretty dark picota cherry color with violet reflections. A high robe, clean and bright with a wide, large and slow tear. Nose
A red wine with an expressive and intense nose in which ripe red fruit aromas are detected. Little by little, as it opens it gives off blue and violet flower notes. The fruit gets darker and is accompanied by a wide range of spiced and toasted aromas. A background of mineral notes that gradually gain intensity. A rich nose that is full of nuances. Taste
A powerful attack followed by a tame finish. A significant amount of fleshy, juicy fruit with highly integrated and well defined acidity as well as ripe and succulent tannins. A long and persistent finish. An enjoyable wine.
Beautiful dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Clean and bright, high robe wine with beautiful thick and dense slow-falling tears. Nose
It is a red wine with expressive and intense nasal aromas in which the notes of ripe red fruit are noticed at the beginning. As it opens up, some notes of blue and violet flowers are noticed and the notes of fruit are gradually turned into black fruit aromas. A wide range of spicy and toasted aromas are also noticed. Some mineral notes are noticed in the background which gradually gain in intensity. A rich nose, plenty of nuances. Taste
In the mouth, this red wine shows a powerful attack and becomes increasingly polished in the mid palate. It has a high load of juicy and fleshy notes of fruit, a very integrated and crispy acidity and a ripe and succulent tannic sensation. Very long and persistent finish. An enjoyable wine.
