Telmo Rodriguez is widely recognized one of Spain’s most talented and prolific winemakers. A proud student and proponent of Spain’s viticultural history, he is leading a revival that focuses on planting indigenous varietals and rediscovering forgotten regions of superior terroir. Telmo studied viticulture and oenology at the University of Bordeaux and was the winemaker at Remelluri, his family winery in Rioja, before setting off on his own in 1990. He spends most of his time and efforts in the vineyards – he farms biodynamically, he trellises his vines using the traditional bush method and only uses massale selections to replant. Telmo understands that most people will be introduced to him through his baseline cuvees, therefore he puts as much attention into his everyday wines as he does his rare and limited bottlings.

Tasting notes
The wine presents aromas of dark cherries, blackberries, black pepper with notes of rose petal and violet. Minerally acidity, espresso coffee and sage flavor merge with chewy tannins on the big, soft finish.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 94 points (Sep 30 2013)
Rich and harmonious, this focused red is dense with flavor, showing blackberry, licorice, toast and mineral notes. Boasts a solid structure, but the palate remains polished and fresh. Balanced and expressive. Drink now through 2025. 50 cases imported. –TM

Technical notes
(100% Tinto de Toro). Grapes harvested from 50+ year old vines were trodden by foot and fermented with native yeasts in large upright oak fermentation vats. The wine was aged for 18 months in new and seasoned oak barriques and foudres.
