CASA MAGUILA QUIZÁS 2012
DO Toro, Spain
625376 (XD) 750 mL $23.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2012 Quizás is still quite toasty after all these years. However, the fruit seems to have the concentration and inner balance to withstand the oak regime imparted to the wine, which comes through as powerful and still a little young for its age. There are sweet spices over a core of ripe red fruit and a full-bodied palate with plenty of fine-grained, slightly dusty tannins. One for powerful food. I guess this should develop further nuances and get more polished with additional bottle time. Drink Date: 2018-2022.
