Casa Maguila Cachito Mío Toro 2014 (Spain) - Wine Review



wine is a new release that will be coming to LCBO VINTAGES on .

This red wine is produced by Casa Maguila, a relatively new winery that was formed in 2009. It is located in the Toro DO appellation within the province of Zamora, in the Castile and Léon autonomous community in northwestern Spain. The founder, Jesús Peña, is from the little town of Caceres, within the Extremadura autonomous community in western Spain, south of Castile and Léon, and "Maguila" was the nickname bestowed upon his ancestral family.

Tinta de Toro is a dark, thick-skinned variant of Tempranillo that anchored its roots in this part of Spain after phylloxera arrived in the late 19th century, As such, some of the vines at Casa Maguila are at least 100 years old, with some of those grapes included in the Cachito Mío. The winery practices sustainable farming among its vineyards, all of which are located in the Toro DO.

Casa Maguila Cachito Mío Toro 2014 (87 pts)

Tasting Note:

CASA MAGUILA CACHITO MÍO TORO 2014 - DO Toro, Spain (#546028) (XD) - $17.95
Made with 100% Tinta de Toro from vines over 50 years old at 715 metres elevation. Aged for 8 months in mostly American oak, and in bottle since May 2015. Black plum and blackberry aromas from the cork. Medium+ intensity nose in the glass is ripe and a touch sweet with blackberry, licorice, sweet oak, and chocolate aromas. It's heavily oaked on the dry palate with more sweet oak spice flavours surrounding the core of dark berry, blackberry and black plum fruit. Gritty tannins are grippy, while juicy acids provide freshness. Mocha chocolate and oak flavours linger on the long finish. Made in a more commercial style that should have wide appeal. Best with red meats. Score: 87 pts
