Professional Wine Reviews for Triton Tinta De Toro Tempranillo 2014

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
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.

Additional Information on Triton Tinta De Toro Tempranillo 2014

Winery: Triton

Varietal: Tempranillo

The Tempranillo grape varietal is often referred to as Spain's 'noble grape', and has over the past century been planted in several countries around the world. Tempranillo grapes produce beautiful ruby red wines, packed full of fascinating flavors which range from intensely fruity, to deep, dark and spicy, holding notes of vanilla, tobacco and leather. Their black skins hold plenty of tannins, and as such, they are often blended with other more rounded or brighter wines, to balance out the character and produce some truly exceptional examples. Tempranillo grapes often fall to a wide range of diseases, and are greatly effected by climatic conditions. They tend to grow best, however, in areas with a mixture of heat and bright sunshine, and brisk breezes which can cool the vines.

Region: Castilla Y Leon

From the beautifully robust, boisterous and spicy red Tempranillo wines of the west, to the fruity, aromatic white Verdejo wines from the Rueda, Castilla y Leon is a Spanish wine region with something to please everyone. The region itself is a particularly fascinating one for European wine fans, as it dates back several centuries and is, in many ways, the defining region of Spain for the country's viticultural identity. Dry, arid soils and baking heat produce wines of a unique character, coming from grapes which have to struggle to attain the moisture they require in order to ripen. The flavors of Castilla y Leon are big, bold and seductive, and packed full of all the passion and history only a country like Spain can provide.

Country: Spain

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
