    The tight and somehow austere 2013 Las Sabias was produced with grapes from old, ungrafted vines fermented in open cement vats followed by an élevage of 16-18 months in 225- and 500-liter French oak barrels. Proprietor Anthony Terryn told me he thinks the cold years in Toro tend to produce wines that are closer to those from Ribera del Duero. The nose is subtle and elegant, a little shy (I tasted in the cold cellar) with nicely integrated oak. The palate revealed very fine tannins and good acidity, serious and proportioned, focused and with a nice, long and tasty finish. 6,852 bottles were bottled in June 2015. This is young, and should develop and improve slowly in bottle. I tasted the 2008 to check the evolution, and it's feeling fresher and developing complexity, bouquet and nuances, which is the challenge with these very powerful Toros. I very much like the style of this 2013. Drink Date: 2017-2025. Score - 93. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2017 )
