2016 Tinta de Toro
93 Jeb Dunnuck
You have certainly seen this wine over the years in our store. This is yet another standout value from the Jorge Ordonez collection. Bang for the buck there are few wines that can match the flavor profile at this price point! Crazy delicious deal!
From Jeb Dunnuck: The larger production cuvée from Ordonez, the 2016 Tinta de Toro Tritón (100% Tinta de Toro) comes all from very old, ungrafted vineyards and was brought up mostly in used barrels. This beautifully sexy red boasts smoking good notes of ripe plums, black cherries, liquid violets, and loads of scrub brush and dried earth. Full-bodied and silky on the palate, with fine, fine tannin, it has remarkable purity, no hard edges, and enough structure to warrant another year in bottle. It’s a seriously impressive wine.
