Vintage marked by the lack of precipitation and higher than usual temperatures throughout the year, with an advanced cycle that progressed unevenly depending on the vineyard. Summer came to end with low minimum temperatures that favoured complete maturation of the grapes. The harvest began on 4th September with moderate yields and ended, almost a month later, on the 30th of the same month. Fascinating and expressive aromas, full of fruit. Succulent, fine, with tamed tannins despite its thrust. Compelling. San Roman 2015 was bottled in January 2018 after spending 24 months in both new and used French and American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, 93 pts

The eponymous 2015 San Román was produced with fruit from a dry and warm year, from one of the earliest harvests to date (but records are broken almost every year, and 2017 was even earlier). It's always sourced from old, head-pruned and ungrafted Tinta de Toro vines on stony, limestone and clay soils in different villages of the appellation,including Morales de Toro, Pedrosa del Rey and San Román de Hornija. It fermented in wide stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and matured for 24 months in oak barrels, 70% French and the rest American It's ripe, wide, hedonistic and generously oaked. A powerful, generous vintage of San Román. It should age nicely in bottle. 95,800 bottles were filled in January 2018.


Bodegas y Vinedos San Roman is a family owned winery that was founded by iconic winemaker Mariano Garcia in 1998 as Bodegas y Vinedos Maurodos. His vision was to produce world class wines which balanced freshness and longevity in the bottle against the renown power of the region's wines.

In the late 1990s his two sons Alberto and Eduardo joined the team, as director of operations and technical director respectively. They own 100 hectares of vineyard in the villages of Villaester, San Roman de Hornija, Morales de Toro and Pedrosa del Rey. The vineyards are planted mainly with Tinta de Toro, a local clone of Tempranillo that has adapted to the local region. In general the vines offer smaller berries and bunches than Tempranillo in other regions, and yields wines that offer deep colors, intense aromas and robust structure.

In recent years the winemaking team, under Eduardo's direction, has been producing wines in a fresher style, harvested at the optimum moment to balance freshness and richness. This leads off with intense attention to farming exceptional grapes using organic methods and some biodynamic concepts and practices.

In terms of the wines,Prima, their entry level wine, has started to incorporate a higher percentage of Garnacha in the blend and is now aged partially in large wooden vats as opposed to barrels. Grapes forSan Roman, their original wine, have been harvested earlier and see shorter maceration times during fermentation. Finally, In 2017, they released their first single vineyard "reserve" wine calledCartago Paraje de Pozo, which comes from a plot of 45 year old vines on very sandy soils and sees extended aging in oak barrels.
