Telmo Rodriguez Pago la Jara Toro 2014 (95 JS)
“Very dense and juicy with a ripe black-cherry heart. Assertive, this has some coal smoke and a fresh, violet-like floral edge, too. There’s a powerful, brash and youthful edge. Structured and concentrated. Deep and juicy.”
Pago la Jara is Telmo’s flagship wine from Toro, made in minute quantities. Opulent and dense, but with trademark balance and seamless style, Pago la Jara represents the world-class level the terroir of Toro can display.
