Castilla y León, Spain
Produced from 100% tinto de toro grapes, San Román is deep cherry, almost black in colour. The nose is intense and exotic, with raisins, menthol, eucalyptus, and ‘fruits des bois’ all evident. Full, round and warm in the mouth, there is a good weight of fruit and an excellent structure of harmonious tannins. It shows well upon release, but can nevertheless benefit from further ageing.
