Wine Enthusiast

Teso la Monja is the new Toro winery from the Eguren family of Rioja fame (former owners of Numanthia-Termes in Toro), and it's proof that no beat has been missed since they sold out to Moët Hennessy. Expect dark, intense black fruit aromas and flavors mixed with heat, tannin, cola and spice. Some oak creeps out on the finish, but overall this is a lovely, bullish Toro. Drink now through 2014.

Score: 92. —Michael Schachner, June 01, 2010.

Wine Advocate

The grapes for the 2007 Almirez came from 30-year-old ungrafted head pruned vines. The wine was aged for 12 months in one-year-old French oak. Deep crimson-colored, it displays an expressive nose of spice box, espresso, plum, and blackberry compote. Full-bodied on the palate with layers of savory black fruits, lots of spice, and enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for 1-2 years, it will drink beautifully from 2011 to 2019. It is an excellent value that over-delivers in a big way.

Score: 91. —Jay Miller, April 2010.

Wine Spectator

Plush and polished, this modern-style red delivers ripe plum and blackberry fruit framed by toasty oak, with well-integrated tannins and a spicy finish. Drink now through 2013. 1,000 cases imported.

Score: 89. —Thomas Matthews, 2010.
