    Winemaker Notes
    Character, identity, expression of Tinta de Toro with elegance, freshness and complexity.

    94: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 2013 Victorino was cropped from a rainy year from 35 hectares of head-pruned, ungrafted, organically farmed 70- to 100-year-old vineyards in the villages of Valdefinjas, Toro and Villabuena del Puente, planted on sandy soils rich in gravel and boulders with a clay subsoil with some limestone veins. They got 14 hectoliters per hectare in 2013 from grapes harvested on October 7, 8 and 11. The destemmed and crushed grapes were foot trodden during the eight days of fermentation with selected yeasts from their own vineyards. The post fermentative maceration lasted 21 days and the wine matured in brand new French barriques for 20 months, where it also underwent malolactic fermentation. During the élevage the wine was racked every four months. This is one of the freshest wines from the collection I tasted, a cuvée with less oak and great freshness, and therefore very good balance. Marcos Eguren agrees that 2013 is a very good and cold vintage in Toro, which resulted in wines that took some time to integrate tannins and acidity, but that have a little less alcohol and very good overall balance. The tannins are fine-grained, firm and fine, giving the wine good nerve. An elegant Toro within the natural power of the zone. The absence of rain in October, which is a constant in the region, could be responsible for the consistency across vintages there. This is the more approachable and drinkable wine from the collection today.

    93: Wine Enthusiast
    Dark, roasted aromas of blackberry, black coffee, cola and cassis lead to a tannic, pounding palate. Oak-rich flavors of toffee, mocha, chocolate and pepper sit on top of blackberry and cassis, while a toasty, concentrated, tannic finish sends this out the door. This is a monster wine with class; drink 2018–2028.

    92: Wine Spectator
    This red is plush yet dense, with ripe plum and currant fruit and toasty oak flavors that mingle over firm tannins and balsamic acidity. Powerful, in the modern style. Best from 2018 through 2028.
