Tasting note – Bajoz Tinta de Toro

Bajoz Tempranillo

I have to admit, I love wine that doesn’t make me think. Don’t get me wrong, deep powerful wines with austerity and a certain aloofness make me smile too. I do enjoy sitting down with other “geeks” and talking about malolactic fermentation, acid levels, tannin structure and yeast strains.

Make sure to keep your eye out for wines from here, and stay tuned for a full story on this DO when I do an interview with a Toro winemaker in the coming weeks. Below are my notes on this wine,
