Mariano Garcia is considered one of Spain's top winemakers and with 30 years experience at the helm of Spain's most storied winery, Vega Siclia. We would have to agree. He was one of the pioneer's in Toro with his San Roman project whis is, year in, year out, one of the most reliable wines of the appellation and flat out delicious.
"A velvety texture carries ripe fruit flavors of plum and blackberry in
this plush red. Cocoa, loamy earth and mineral notes add depth and
interest. Ripe tannins are well-integrated, and balsamic acidity keeps
this lively." 94 points Wine Spectator. Highly recommended.
"I also had the opportunity to taste the 2014 San Roman, which has
benefitted from one extra year in bottle. The year was less warm and
ripe than 2015, but the fruit is still quite ripe, but without excess.
It has nicely integrated oak and a powerful mouthfeel keeping the poise
and elegance. The flavors are focused, and the end is long." 94 points Luis Gutierrez Wine Advocate
