WA 92 IWC 91 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Romanico (1,500 cases produced) is made from 100% Tinta de Toro (the local name for Tempranillo), and is aged for six months in a combination of new and used French oak. Malolactic is done in oak, and the result is full-bodied, opaque purple-colored wine with superb richness as well as lots of blackberry, charcoal and cassis intermixed with licorice, new saddle leather, pepper and bouquet garni. This nearly viscous red should drink beautifully for 7-10 years."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Brilliant ruby. Expansive, highly perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, allspice, vanilla and woodsmoke. Spicy and seamless on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and cherry compote flavors given bite by a suggestion of black pepper. A sexy floral note comes up on the finish, which hangs on with excellent focus and persistence."
According to Wine Spectator - "Cherry, plum, herbal, tar and spice flavors mingle in this solid red, with muscular tannins and rather tart, citrusy acidity. The spicy finish brings you back for another sip. Drink now through 2020. " 14.5% ABV.
