A Meaty Wine from Toro


Bodegas Covitoro was founded in 1974 by a group of wine makers.  Today the winery is equipped with latest technology and produces wine from some 900 hectares in Toro.  This was a solid wine which provided ample meaty and smoky notes.  If that sounds appealing then you will be sure to enjoy this solid bottle.  This wine is available at Wine World & Spirits in Seattle.

2006 Bodegas Covitoro, Gran Cermeno, Toro – $17
Imported by Beacon Wine Company.  This wine is 100% Tinta de Toro which was aged for 12 months in American oak casks.  This wine looked a touch older with a light to medium color of ruby with garnet.  The nose revealed toasty, meaty aromas.  In the mouth there were meaty, bacon flavors, mineral notes, and flavors which stuck to the mouth.  There was a nice shining blue and black mineral note which became refreshing and chewy in the aftertaste.  The tannins coated the sides of the tongue.  ** Now-2017.
