El Viejo by Matsu 2012

El Viejo

by Matsu 2012

Producer : Matsu

Region : Spain (Spain)

Bottle Per Case : 6 x 750 ml

Tasting Notes

"The label of the 2010 El Viejo depicts an elderly gentleman with consternation on his face. One assumes he is not quite as old as the century-old vines that compose this wine, which is aged in French oak for 16 months. It does have a beautifully defined bouquet, the oak assimilated into the pure dark berry fruit with style and class. The palate is smooth and caressing on the entry, building succinctly in the mouth towards a cashmere finish of licorice-tinged dark berries, spices and cloves. This is undoubtedly a sophisticated Toro red to which I am sure the elderly gentleman on the label would approve. Drink now-2025."

94 points - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, April 2013 (2010 vintage)

The Producer

Matsu

Matsu represents a journey through time, through several generations dedicated to life on the land: youth, maturity and old age. Bodega Matsu's four wines originating in the D.O. Toro are made with grapes from centenary vineyards, and the wisdom inherited from generations of winemakers who continue to grow the vines in an artisan way using the most ancestral techniques.

El Pícaro, El Recio, El Viejo and La Jefa personify the essence of Matsu, their individual relationship with the land in accordance with their age and their life stage. They are the tribute to hundreds of men and women who have dedicated their lives to the vineyard in this region. The result is four modern and sophisticated wines, capable of displaying soft, discreet elegance without losing the power that characterizes Toro wines.
