Even in a marginal vintage, you should expect a true and polished taste of Toro from Maurodos's Prima label. Blackberry, cherry and plum aromas are bonded by light balsam-like oak, while the palate is structured and delivers plenty of ripe black fruit. Chocolate and pepper on the finish seem right for the wine, which nails the Toro style even if it isn't a blockbuster. Imported by Grapes of Spain.
