Telmo Rodriguez g Dehesa Gago 2014

Toro, Castilla-Leon, SpainTelmo Rodriguez (or T-Rod, as his groupies know him) is a Spanish winemaking pioneer crafting terroir-driven wines from unique vineyards across his country. Instead of the flying winemaker moniker, he calls himself a driving winemaker, crisscrossing Spain via autopistas. G refers to the wild bulls (gago) in the rugged and recently revitalized (thanks to T-Rod) Toro region, and the rustic, windy, dry countryside is woven into this wine. Ripe dark cherries, fig, and cured meats lead to a leathery, full-bodied palate of baked fruits, black liquorice, dusty stone, black peppercorns. Heady and hearty, and drinking well now thanks to age, best served with equally powered dishes.Tasted: 18 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 private wine shops Producer: CompaƱia de Vinos Telmo RodriguezDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
