BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS Maurodos Toro Viña San Román 1999
93 points, $34
Toro, a small appellation west of Rueda, is drawing more and more interest. This beauty shows an impressive combination of power and balance. The fruit flavors are lively and crisp, with blackberry and currant notes, vivid enough to carry masses of toasty —Thomas Matthews
