Natalie's Score: 90/100
Juicy, dark and delicious! Big black fleshy fruit wrapped in a smoky blanket. Terrific for this price. The finish is saturated with dark fruit flavours and aromas that provoke the desire for another glass. A perfect pairing for The Good Wife. Polished tannins with a long finish.
Food pairings: grilled steak, pork chops, lamb.

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Dark, rich and delicious! This Duero Valley red shows ripe black plum, cassis, smoke, and graphite minerality. The palate shows a deep concentration of dark plum and berry flavours with a balanced acidity and firm developing tannins. The value for this quality rich, full-bodied red is astounding! Enjoy pairing with grilled rib-eye steaks. Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
If we looked back at previous vintages of this red wine I'm pretty sure I would have written that I first chose this wine for it's label. There's something whimsical and dark about it. So it comes as no surprise to me that the juice in the bottle is dark, rich and brooding. Ripe black cherry and plum, sweet red berries, earthiness, leather, chocolate, vanilla, and garrigue. Alcohol is creeping up at 14% but there's no overwhelming heat in the bottle. Full-bodied and smoothing tannins. Enjoy with your favourite cut of red meat over the next 5 years. Great value.

|Torres' Celeste Crianza (2012) is silky, juicy ripe dark fruit on the palate. Tannins are well-integrated and this is a drink now wine at a terrific price. Wine grapes for this wine are sources from high-altitude vineyards in the Ribera Del Duero. This high altitude, as if reaching into the Heavens is why Torres uses the term ‘Celeste’. Pair with gourmet burgers. - Community Wine Reviews|
