Descarte 2015 D.O. Toro
"a completely alluring wine…lavish fruit…tertiary notes from bottle age add savory notes…Deal me in."
93 points

Elias Mora Crianza 2016 D.O. Toro
"so concentrated and compelling that I’m tempted to write “bloody” rather than “sappy”…Terrific now with food but really crafted for a decade’s worth of cellaring…"
93 points

Elias Mora Tinto 2017 D.O. Toro
"modestly oaked Tempranillo from the high plain of central Spain provides some of the most fabulously pure, satisfyingly delicious fruit in all the world of wine. This is a stellar case in point…it shows its seriousness immediately, but then its playful side emerges in the form of very expressive aromas and flavors…this is terrific young Toro."

Luna Beberide Art 2017 D.O. Bierzo
"a wonderful performance…rich and generous rendition that displays the warmth of the growing season while still retaining the freshness that makes old vine…Sip after sip, it shows virtually perfect balance…already fantastic, and will surely get even better for another five years."
