Tasted two wines from Dama de Toro, from the Douro Valley in Spain. Actually blind tasted them ... an interesting activity as wines from Toro, even tempranillo, are different from the rest of Spain. One can possibly confuse them with a French Malbec because of the alcohol, wild berry fruit, violet, and licorice, and possibly even a Syrah from Australia. The wines were well balanced, and fruit-led, great with meals.

…proposta, não faz feio. É besteira querer comparar com outros vinhos mais caros e superiores, o Toro loco vai perder, mas se você pensar que é um vinho básico, para o seu dia-a-dia, ele tem seu valor: bem feito, redondo, final um pouco curto, mas que vai agradar muita gente que comprou e que não tem hábito de beber vinho com regularidade.
