Torres Celeste Crianza 2014

Ribera del Duero, Castilla-Leon, SpainA big wow for the 2014 version of Celeste, made with fruit grown at about 950 meters above sea level. It has long reached for the stars but this year it has made the jump above the French and American oak to a much fresher, more electric style. Expect an attractive, smoky, black cherry aroma and a far more sophisticated palate where the tannins are ripe and almost lush. The Torres family say it’s the best yet and we concur. Black fruit, black cherry jam and fragrant dark florals that dovetail into a warm, round finish. Roast lamb and or turkey would be a fine match. Certainly, a more moderate look at Ribero del Duero and tempranillo and it looks good on everyone. You can easily cellar this through 2023.Tasted: 29 November 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 22.00 QC 22.00 SAQ MB 22.00 BC 23.50 BCLS AB 28.00 NB 28.00 Producer: Familia TorresDistributors: Dandurand
