The purple-colored 2010 Torremoron is 100% Tempranillo that was raised in stainless steel. Spice box, licorice, lavender, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a juicy, ripe, succulent wine that will be a crowd-pleaser for another 4+ years. It is an outstanding value.Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Editorial Reviews for Torremoron
Beautiful on the nose with violet and chocolate accents framing bright, slightly wild huckleberry and blackberry fruit underlane with some smoky mineral accents. Zesty on entry and edgy with youthful freshness, this delivers a mouth filling, slightly spice palate full of wild blueberry, black cherry, and blackberry fruit. there’s a nice edge to the tannins, but they really aren’t intrusive and while this is a pretty fruity style of wine it’s structured and firm with great length and surprising minerality on the fairly long finish. Fun to drink and a lovely wine for a BBQ. 87pts

This Tempranillo was delicious, but it was not groundbreaking. It is definitely a great value. I found the nose to be very inviting. This wine had great texture and a lengthy spicy finish. It was lacking in complexity and the tannins were a bit pronounced.

Dark red violet hue with orange ring, dusty earth and black cherry, raspberry nose carries to the mouth with lean, rigid feel. Unfocused with a short finish. Food pairings add some missing dimensions.
After decanting and letting it breath a bit I pour my glass. The wine is a beautiful, bright violet/garnet color. The nose is a little red currant, cherry and mint with a good touch of old-world earthiness that I enjoy in my wines. The wine is medium bodied, good tannins and acidity delivering juicy raspberries and producing an "Ahhhh" of pleasure.
Thin, aromas of cherry and plum and a vegetable backdrop, watery and dry. Makes mouth black. Pairings: Tried with BBQ, nothing especial. Perhaps something spicy?

Bright ruby. Floral and peppery spice notes lift aromas of black raspberry and cherry. Fruity and supple on the palate, with fresh red berry and anise flavors sharpened by a touch of white pepper. Finishes dry and spicy, with dusty tannins and a hint of bitter herbs.
A sensational value, this 2012 Tinto (100% Tempranillo) may merit an outstanding rating with another 4–6 months in bottle. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color, a beautiful texture, and a big, sweet bouquet of blackberries, black cherries, licorice and lead pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied with loads of fruit, a precocious appeal, ripe tannin and decent acidity, it can be enjoyed over the next 4–5 years.
An excellent bargain, this 100% Tempranillo (80ndash;100-year old vines) was aged completely in stainless steel. Patrick Mata told me that the village from which it emerges has only 95 residents, all of whom are grape farmers! This may be the ldquo;bargain of the yearrdquo; in my tastings. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of black cherry jam, licorice, blackberries and subtle hints of earth, pepper and meat. Drink this medium to full-bodied, rich, layered red over the next 2ndash;3 years.
Bright ruby. Perfumed, expressive bouquet of black and blue fruits and candied rose. Ripe and generous on the palate, offering fleshy cherry and blackberry flavors and a touch of black pepper. Dusty tannins add grip to the sweet, nicely persistent finish.

This smoky, lip-smacking red is made from 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo). It's unoaked with a myriad of flavors of blackberries, blueberries and spice. A phenomenal example of how well this grape shows without the use of wood.
Exhibits crisp acidity in its fruity, delightful personality. Loads of cherry and raspberry fruit and a dry, smooth finish.
