Grape Variety: 100% Tinta de Toro (local name for Tempranillo)
A fabulous effort, the Teso la Monja Almirez could easily pass for a big, rich Chateauneuf du Pape, even though there is not a touch of Grenache to be found in it. Its dense purple color is accompanied by notes of charcoal, barbecued meat, blackberries, cassis, licorice, camphor and spring flowers. Boasting massive concentration, a full-bodied mouthfeel and lavish extract, all concealing of its French oak aging, this rich, full wine possesses velvety tannins as well as a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds.
