Sobreño says Tinta Toro is similar to Tempranillo, but smaller and thicker with a higher concentration of color. Sobreño describes the color of their Crianz as “Deep-red cherry with purple tones”. Their tasting notes include black berry, oak and spice on the nose, and a “meaty” flavor of “very fine and ripe tannins”. seems to agree with this assessment, rewarding Finca Sobreño Crianz a 92 pt score.

    “Biscuit-like aromas with grilled nuts and chocolate oak-influence, acorss ripe dark berries. The palate has a very succulent, sweet-fruit core with plenty of ripe mulberries and plums. Supple tannins. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

    If you’re a fan of Tempranillo, or spanish wines in general, Finca Sobreño Crianz is a must try!
