The 2012 Toro 'Reserva' from Elias Mora was aged for 24 months in French oak prior to bottling. A brooding, glass staining wine, this begins with deep aromas of coffee grounds, eucalyptus, black cherry cordial and dark chocolate shavings. The palate is wonderfully balanced and smooth, showing moderate tannins. Black and blue fruits take shape in the glass supported by strong tension and notable weight. This marvelous wine is drinking incredibly well now but also has the potential for long-term cellaring.
