Wine Advocate
Bodegas Triton, 2014 Tinto de Toro

90
"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."
–November 2015, Robert Parker, Jr
