(2014 Vintage) Bodegas Torremoron is located in Quintanamanvirgo, a tiny village located in the northern heart of the Ribera del Duero. Winemaker Fernando de la Cal produces a traditionally made 100% Tempranillo from his family’s 80-100 year old vines. The vineyards are planted at 2,703 feet to sand with clay and limestone subsoil. The classic continental climate of the Burgos subregion – sunny days, cool nights and moderate rainfall results in darker, more concentrated wines than those from its western Ribera del Duero counterparts.
Robert Parker(2014 Vintage) A terrific value from this prestigious appellation in Spain, the 2014 Tinto shows plenty of new saddle leather, a dark ruby/plum color, juicy black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, and a touch of underbrush and earth. A completely naked, unoaked, dry red wine, it should drink nicely for several years. Amazingly, at this price point, the vines that produced this 2014 Tinto were planted between 1914 and 1934!
