"What a wine. It tries to intimidate. At first, by its bottle size and alcohol level, but in the glass this 100% Garnacha is like a purring kitten—well a purring 20-pound Maine Coon cat, joyous in its pretty red fruit, and its earthy, meaty, vanilla and cinnamon toast range of goodness. All lush, Twisted Oak’s Torcido is, like a retro soap opera, brave and beautiful." - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
Torcido (Tor-SEE-doh), [SP] adj., 1. Twisted,
2. Just like this gnarly Spanish clone Grenache...
The Twisted Oath: I, state your name, do solemnly swear that I am allowed to cross the street, that I can blow my very own nose, and I clean up my own messes (mostly). I promise to be Twisted in thought, word, and deed without regard to race, religion, or personal hygiene, or hairstyle.
