At 2200 feet above sea level the old vines of Bodegas Frutos Villar (Muruve)are well established. The winery was founded in 1920 and was the first in the region. The Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) vines sourced for this Reserva average 40 years old and are deeply concentrated and rich. The wine is aged in 80% new French oak for 16 months. It's a Wine Enthusiast Magazine Editor's Choice with a 93 point score. They said "This ripe, modern red shows all the positives of Toro and the 2009 vintage. Lusty, exuberant aromas of black fruits, vanilla and pipe tobacco are highly appealing, while the palate is muscular and tannic yet balanced. Blackberry, cassis, chocolate and lemon flavors finish firm and bold. Drink through 2020."
