The 2008 Pintia has a fragrant bouquet with scents of dark plum, mulberry and fresh cherry, the new oak neatly folded into the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, silky smooth entry. The tannins here are very fine with dark cherries, a touch of sloe and spices that become more pronounced toward the focused finish. This is perhaps the most feminine 2008 so far – less sexy than the 2007 but still seductive. - Neal Martin

Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of cassis, cherry-cola and incense, with a peppery topnote. Offers deeply pitched dark berry compote flavors and brighter notes of allspice and star anise, with a vanilla undertone. ... Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of cassis, cherry-cola and incense, with a peppery topnote. Offers deeply pitched dark berry compote flavors and brighter notes of allspice and star anise, with a vanilla undertone. Livelier on a finish that leaves suggestions of candied flowers and mocha. Quite suave and approachable already but this one will be better in a few more years.

This is the twelfth vintage of Vega Sicilia’s Toro project. Its voluptuous ripe fig and blackberry flavor carries a clear sense of the region. While it’s ample in weight, the tannin structure is sufficient... This is the twelfth vintage of Vega Sicilia’s Toro project. Its voluptuous ripe fig and blackberry flavor carries a clear sense of the region. While it’s ample in weight, the tannin structure is sufficient enough to carry the depth of flavor. A wine to age another five years.
