Vetus 2005

Vetus, Toro 2005 There’s a definite sense of Port in the nose, combining liqueur-like berry essence and a bit of spirit. In the mouth the berry flavors are vibrant yet this wine is still quite tight and would benefit from a long sleep in the cellar.

The grape behind this wine is Tempranillo, grown over 10 hectares in Villabuena del Puente, at an average altitude of 700 meters. At least 50% of the wine was aged in new French and American oak barrels for 12 months. Elaborado y embotellado in Morales de Toro 14.5% purchased for $22.99 at Bottle Barn
