Dry, medium-full bodied, well balanced, fairly dense, ripe, plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, well structured, complex, rich finish that is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of acidity. This extremely tasty 100% Tinta de Toro (aka Tempranillo) spent 14 months in 30% new French oak and has 14.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. NEW in Vintages. CSPC 26540

TASTING NOTE: The 2016 Almirez is brilliant! Made from 100% Tinta de Toro that spent 14 months in 30% new French oak, this full-bodied, concentrated 2016 is loaded with notions of blueberries, blackberries, cedar pencil, and cured meats. With terrific depth of fruit, notable purity, and a sexy, seamless style, it's one of those knockout wines that way over-delivers! Maturity: 2018-2026.
