"Triton Mencia is fermented in stainless steel. After fermentation, the wine is transferred to one to three year old French oak barrels and aged for 10 months. This result is a complex wine with great structure and a lasting finish." —winemaker
"The 2013 Triton Mencia emerges from a 24.5-acre vineyard containing two plots, one planted in 1935 and one in 1942. Yields were a tiny 1.1 to 1.2 tons of fruit per acre, and this wine was aged 10 months in one- to three-year-old Burgundy and Bordeaux barrels. It is a major sleeper in the Ordoñez portfolio of values. Made from 100% Mencia, it exhibits a dense purple color along with a big, sweet nose of blueberries, black raspberries, wet stones and white flowers. Medium-bodied with supple tannins, good opulence and surprising intensity, this is a superb value for the price. Drink now-2018+." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Opaque ruby. Complex aromas of cherry pit, cassis, lavender and tobacco, with slow-building spiciness and a hint of smoky minerals. Sappy dark berry flavors gain energy and power with air, picking up hints of cola and licorice. A note of cracked pepper adds vibrancy and cut to the gently tannic, nicely persistent finish." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
