Tasting Note :
The 2012 Campo Alegre Toro begins with a pleasant aroma of black cherry, spice, plum, pepper and licorice. Tasting reveals this to be a big, dry, tasty, full-bodied Toro, just the way we like them. With lots of black cherry, ripe blackberry, spice, licorice, cola and touches of vanilla and chocolate this is a quality wine. It's dry and tannic on the long finish, just like it should be for a wine like this. It should also age quite nicely for the next few years so don't be afraid to throw a few bottles into your wine rack.
