2019 Cillar de Silos Torresilo
Highest quality of a ripe red wine from Spain from the classic tempranillo grape, often with cabernet sauvignon and with considerable wood aging. Accessible, rich, good complexity, quite powerful. Lots of fruit with great wood tannins with sometimes a vanilla note from the education in American oak. By default, well above 92 Parker points every year. 93 WA, only 'Ribera del Duero' gold medal at the IWC. The 2018 got 94/100 points from Parker.
The Torresilo shows the strength of Tempranillo , with selected old vines from some of the best vineyards/plots of the Ribera (including pre -phylloxera plots ). Deep, dark and meditative , this wine exudes ripe dark berries and plums alongside spicy notes of nutmeg and mocha . In the mouth the wine is balanced, powerful and full of elegance . This with the ripe tannins and layers of dark fruit leads to an intense mineral finish.
