"The 2010 Romanico (100% Tinta de Toro aged in 100% new French oak for six months) exhibits a sensational bouquet of licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco, blackberries and cassis. Full-bodied, smoky, rich, complex, big and dense without being heavy or awkward, this beauty will drink well for 5-7 years. These are two extraordinary wines produced by the Eguren family in the province of Zamora in Toro. Readers who love full-flavored, robust, exuberant red wines will adore these two 2010s." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"(100% tempranillo, raised in 100% new French oak and then aged for six months in more new oak):  Saturated ruby.  Vibrant raspberry and candied cherry on the nose, with strong oak-spiciness and a kiss of smoky mocha.  Rich but vibrant, offering intense red berry flavors and a floral quality on the clinging finish." -Rated 91, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
