Telmo Rodriguez Dehesa Gago 2010 Toro (Tempranillo), $12.74-$17.99, 89 points, was a bright ruby red transitioning at the broad clear wine ring with orange/red hues.
Soft aromas of wet stone, brine, chocolate and cherry notes were very good if not a bit subtle.
The body of this wine was slightly more than medium, the acidity was fair-plus, and the tannins were soft yet supportive enough for my Mexican cuisine.
Flavors of cherry cola, pomegranate, and chocolate notes were good.
Finished long on cayenne pepper, a hint of mint, and a warm 14% alcohol.
