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.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Celeste Crianza has an aromatic nose of ripe cherries, dark cassis, vanilla and leather. The sensuous palate has a whole lot happening, with ripe dark berries, leather, vanilla and a touch of tobacco. Very smooth mouthfeel and a long ripe dark berry finish.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Torres Celeste Crianza fruit is sourced from high altitude vineyards (895m) which is key to producing incredibly refreshing and balanced wine. This high altitude, as if reaching into the Heavens is why Torres uses the term ‘Celeste’ in this value priced gem. Sweet dark fruit, dried figs, prunes, leather, and rustic notes. Soft on the palate, a wine this is sure to please! Lovely baking spice and fruit on the palate. Yummy! 91 points. Tasted March 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

I love the whimsy and dreaminess of this label. A beautiful sea of stars as seen in the night skies above a mountaintop vineyard 895m above sea level. Lots of dark fruit with baking spices, vanilla, toffee, prune, leather with some toast and floral on the palate. Tannins are smooth with good cleansing acidity. Long fruit driven finish.This is a crowd pleasing red wine. Pair with grilled red meats. Excellent BBQ wine - Hamburgers!

|The Torres family has been connecting with winemaking for three centuries. The Celeste is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes., created in the winery's Ribera de Duero winery at 895 metres above sea level. This wine was aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. This is the Torres family's first wine made in Spain's Ribera del Duero region. - Community Wine Reviews|
