Mission Briefing

Codename:

Toreador

Today’s Monte Hiniesta 2010 Estate Tinta de Toro comes with quite the pedigree: 92 Points (Wine Advocate), 100% Organic, Old Vines (76-years-old). But the best part? We just couldn’t get enough of how delicious it was.

Our tasting panel was blown away by today’s wine, with quite a few members clamoring for a refill. And it’s not hard to see why. Produced from 100% Tinto de Toro, a clone of Tempranillo, today’s wine is driven by lush terroir notes, dark baking spices, tilled earth, and a subtle minerality.

Please enjoy today’s stunner with our boldest recommendation. Cheers!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, deep crimson, with flecks of purple at the heart of the glass.

Smell:

A really lovely nose, with robust floral aromas highlighted by lavender and dried rose petals. These aromas are framed by notes of dark plum, blackberry, sweet tobacco leaf, and fresh cedar wood shavings.

Taste:

Terroir is at the forefront of this Spanish gem, with layered flavors of minerality, dark baking spices, and sandalwood joining fresh currant, mulberry, cassis, and a touch of pomegranate.

Finish:

Best decanted. The finish is well structured with velvety, grippy tannins and a silken mouthfeel.

Pairing:

Pork tenderloin, roasted with dried Mission fig and rosemary and served with a touch of balsamic drizzled overtop.
