Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Intense blackberry colour. Spicy and intense nose, with liquorice and black pepper hints on a base of well ripened fruits (blackberry and cherry). On the palate, very fruity at first with ripened tannins, also persistent and full bodied. This wine pairs well with a great variety of meat dishes including roast and small game.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Couleur intense de mures. Nez intense et épicé avec des touches de réglisse et de poivre noir sur une base de fruits bien murs (mures et cerises). En bouche, il est trcs fruité au départ avec des tannins bien murs, trcs persistant et charnu.

Terry Jeans rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a full-bodied, rich wine from one of the biggest producers in Spain. Dark, ripe fruits with vanilla and oak with medium tannins and acid, well-balanced. For the price, this is a good value wine that goes perfectly with a roast, burgers, or a juicy steak. It is a vintage wine in Ontario, but always available at the SAQ.

just great
Heather Wall rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Deep,dark and delicious. Full bodied dark fruit, vanilla, toasted oak and floral notes on the nose and repeats on the palate. Smooth tannins. Long cherry finish.Enjoyed with grilled lamb chops. BBQ steak, hamburgers, beef fajitas would pair nicely too. Salud!

Natalie's Review

Celeste Crianza, Torres 2010, D.O., Ribera Del Duero, Spain: 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 Game of Thrones.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
