Review

Yaso is one of those Toro reds that's easy to understand, not the sort to find intimidating. Extraction is less than in other wines from the region and the fruit flows more lightly.

The century-old vineyards giving rise to its grapes lie on sandy-loam terraces in the River Duero's basin, at around 700 metres above sea level. There, the old bush vines are forced to do their best to combat low rainfall and some very strong contrasts in day and night temperatures.

In the winery intervention is kept to the minimum, with the intention of respecting to the maximum the grape's natural potential. Thus, on pouring a glass of Yaso, we can appreciate the black fruit (cherries and blueberries) at just the right point of maturity and a delicate undertone of cocoa; with a little more time fine toasty notes and hints of liquorice make an appearance. On the palate, despite a discreet entry, it constantly develops, becoming luscious and delightful. Its tannins are very lively, but an almost grainy feel carries it through elegantly. The acidity brings to mind Morello cherries and the aromas of violets reinforce the feeling of elegance. Menthol and scrubland hints round off a harmonious passage with a fresh and spicy finish.

Very good with beef

I liked this wine very much. Enjoyed with well cooked beef in a lovely restaurant. Just perfect :) Cheap but good.

Total desacuerdo con la bodega

Tras catarlo, estoy en total desacuerdo con la descripción facilitada supongo por la bodega. No es un Toro amable, le falta cuerpo y le sobran taninos ásperos. Donde dice que la extracción ha sido mínima debería decir máxima. Una decepción.

Suave y facil de beber, un poco afrutado

Un vino bien balanceado con un ligero sabor afrutado y también ligeros tanino. Buena calidad precio aunque para mi gusto necesita un poco mas de cuerpo

Lovely, fresh wine

Enjoyed with some moose ribs. A very nice wine. I will buy this again for sure. I can recommend this.

Needs opening and decanting to get at its hidden depths.

This wine is locked in a vault. If you open the wine and immediatly drink some, its whole point is lost. This wine needs decanting and leaving for a seriously long time. I found three hours was optimum. Then the wine is a revelation of superb fruit and great depth which is well worth the wait. So dont rush it, plan ahead and you will be amply rewarded.
