Tasting Notes

The red has very concentrated black fruit flavors and overtones of crushed stone.

91 Points - James Suckling
Intense black-cherry nose with just a whiff of smoke. Good depth on the ample body. Bright and straight, thanks to the crisp acidity. If the dry tannins were a bit less strident, then this would rate higher. Drink or hold.

90 Points - Wine Spectator
From a 22-acre vineyard owned by the Bodegas Ordoñez, the 2015 Zerran is a blend of old-vine Carignan, Syrah and Grenache and aged ten months sur lie in Burgundy and Bordeaux barrels and bottled unfiltered. It has an earthy, mineral nose of wet slate/pebbles intermixed with black cherry and blacker fruits, as well as hints of truffle and loamy soil notes. It is followed by an outstanding wine with terrific richness, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and noticeable, but well-integrated tannins. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
