*Buil & Gine Toro 2005

B & G is a Catalan winemaker who has expanded his production to Toro in the province of Zamora. This is a big, powerful red, with dark berry, plum, chocolate and vanilla elements and just the right amount of acidity at the finish. In its prime, and a fantastic bargain at $10.99. By all means get it if there's any left at this price.

The state store website has a 2006 Buil & Gine Baboix Montsant listed. Is this the same as your reviewed wine?

It's not. I reviewed the Baboix Montsant a while ago; it's also very good, but I liked the Toro even better.
