Gago 2003 Bodegas Telmo Rodriguez
100% Tempranillo (Tinta de Toro)
The wine is fermented in stainless steel, aged in tank, and bottled early to preserve its freshness.
Quite deep purple colour; rich, full, enticing nose of black fruits and some smoke; front flavour of soft chewy tannins backed up with soft supple fruit. I am thinking 'port' as I drink...and check the back of the bottle. 15%!!...no wonder it is so sexy...but 1% less would have gotten it 1 point more.
Size is not everything!
