This is filled with intense black and blue fruits, nearly overripe but always stepping away from that precipice. The power of the fruit is matched by the intensity of the oak, but everything coheres and finds balance. The finish is lengthy, with vanilla, black fruits, and some racy red fruits as well. Drink soon or in the next ten or so years.
Mauro Tempranillo / Syrah
Since 1980 Mauro has defined itself for producing wines with a potential for aging that show the identity of the terroir, the characteristics of the variety, and the personality of the winemaker, Mariano Garcia. The winery produces three wines: Mauro, Mauro VS, which has a longer aging period and made of the best grapes selected and sourced from two main parcels, and Terreus, which comes from one unique vineyard with vines over a century old. All are opulent, balanced, and elegant.
