"Enjoy this elegant wine created from old vines of Tempranillo from the best areas in the south of Zamora province. Meticulously vinified in small lots and aged in the best French oak for fifteen months, the wine has a distinctive balance of ripe red fruit flavors and a delicate spiciness. A hint of dark chocolate completes the long finish." —winemaker
"Vivid purple. Fresh, focused scents of ripe dark berries, candied flowers and peppery spices. Silky and appealingly sweet, offering sappy blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Shows depth as well as vivacity and finishes with strong floral persistence, the harmonious tannins fading into the wine's clinging dark fruit." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous

"A more substantial and intense wine is the 2014 Triton Tinta de Toro. This is from a fabulous appellation in Spain, which deserves more and more attention for the high-quality wines emerging from there. Yields were 0.81 tons of fruit per acre from the sandy, alluvial, gravel soils. The wine was aged in one- to three-year-old Burgundy and Bordeaux barrels for six months prior to bottling. This is beautiful and a great value from Ordoñez. It is a dense ruby/purple with a sweet kiss of crème de cassis, roasted meats, steak tartare, and a touch of licorice and underbrush. The soft tannins and fleshy, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel offer substantial flavor and intensity for this price-point. Drink it over the next 3-4 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Aromas of oak, asphalt, and ripe black fruits make for a lusty, modern nose. The feel is jammy and thick. Flavors of blackberry, chocolate and mocha give way to a strong oak component. A dense finish runs minty and chocolaty, with an emphasis on syrupy richness. Drink through 2021." —Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
