2015 Vatan, Tinta de Toro

Merchant's Pick

THE RECENT PICK

2015 Vatan, Tinta de Toro

Burgers Not Included!
"Wow. Gorgeous.." James Suckling

Wow indeed!

Though burgers are not included, you will get luscious notes of currant, deep rich cherry, tar, balsamic, espresso, and dense, velvety tannins.

If you are a Cabernet Sauvignon fan, you are going to be hard-pressed not to compare this terrific Tempranillo to the likes of Caymus, Silver Oak, and Jordan.

You may not get as much black fruit in the 2015 Vatan as the latter, but you get much much more with its balance, texture and spice.

Suggestion #1: Order first and tell your friends after as there isn't much to be had.

Suggestion #2: Serve it all summer alongside your favorite burger recipe.

Suggestion #3: You could make a meal of it on its own simply with a wedge of Manchego.

Introducing this Tempranillo to your table may be your best decision this summer!

Wow indeed!

$39.95 per bottle / $479.40 per case

Summary


THE MERCHANT'S MARK

95 / 100

The 2015 Vatan showcases luscious ripe notes of currant, deep rich cherry, tar, balsamic, espresso, and dense, velvety tannins. If you are a Cabernet Sauvignon fan, you are going to be hard-pressed not to compare this terrific Tempranillo to the likes of Caymus, Silver Oak, and Jordan. Delicious with burgers, but equally compelling simply alongside a wedge of Manchego.

WINE SPECTATOR

92 / 100

"This rich red leads off with smoky notes of espresso and tar, accenting a core of ripe currant, licorice and iron. The palate is dense, with muscular tannins and balsamic acidity. Austere but harmonious. Drink now through 2030"
