Yaso 2012 Toro Wine Review


Produced from vines planted in 1985, growing in zone 2 of Spain in the Toro wine region in clay and limestone.

We found this wine at Costco for around $10 and could not pass it up.  Wine Advocate rates it a 93 which I would agree with.

This is what I would call a basic red, not overpowering and with a very smooth finish.  Let it breath for about 30 minutes if you can, as it will make a difference.

Definitely pick up a bottle if you see it.

The XPRT wine review rating 92 out of 100.
