National sales manager for Grapes of Spain, a Spanish wine importer; but ombibulous when off duty.
Drinking fine, tart red fruits nose, bracing acid and slightly firm tannins. Classic food wine. Marked down for very funky combo ot tataric acid crystals (fine by me) combined w congealed proteinaceous(?) white slimy strings in bottom of bottle. — 6 days ago
Brought by a friend which makes it better :)
More lifted fruit, orange zest than I expected for a 100% Viura. Rich texture, viscous, balanced w a clean finish (so good acids). — 12 days ago

From before the producer broke out the single vineyards, so simply labeled Corullon.
2000 was the second vintage I saw in the US. Came in funky 10 pack wooden boxes, as I recall.
Ruby w a more mature edge to the color. Amazing complexity; iron, mineral, bramble fruits, floral, hints of the ocean/iodine, cassis/minty. Palate is fully integrated and still with life. — 12 days ago
Likely faulty bottle, heat touched. — 12 days ago
Aurelio opened this inaugural vintage in honor of the passing of wine owner Luis Delgado.
Complex and complete. Youthful colrr that shows some age in the edge, but center is still purple. Nose is intensely cassis, animal/meaty (not dirty), minty, salted plum. This has a lot of life left, if anyone has bottles left. 😅 — 12 days ago
Good, pleasant. Not super mineral nor incisive more fresh, easy and soft. — a month ago
