Wine Ninja. "If the wine doesn't match the food, throw the food ...
Smells of minty, lusty, puffed rice.
Medium bodied excellence! Spicy eucalyptus, blueberries, plump, yet unsweetened. This is a Spanish wine that hits every point of what I want a wine to be. A harmonious balance of oak and acid, fruit and herb, changing mouthfeels as the wine evolves. Wow, this vintage could go another 5 - 10.

A favorite of Oregon,
Smells of freshly crushed petals.
Coming in with zest, pithe, inhaling persimmon, oregano, mint. Exhales of cedar,dried berry blend, acidified cherry. A great winery, has been for many, many years.
Finally! Spring -ish in DC..

Bought @ Santiago wine club, with the Patagonian flag in background.
- a lively nose of ozone and all that goes with it
Bright, at first, with berry, mint, cherry stones, peach pit.
Light bodied, with good viscosity.
Clay and earth see this wine wrap up with an electrifying epitaph.

Smells of a sweet mound of earthy funk.
Saline, anise, dark cherry pit, big , earth, mushroom, terroir. Smack your tongue around tannins, to fade elegantly to the acidic sunset.
This has loosened, and let its hair down, and has become a stunning wine to converse with.

Raiding the cellar again.
Smells of ripe red fruits.
Smoothness ensues - silky mouthfeel, pithe, herb, unsugared red fruit, honeyed undertones. Grape skin tannins, tangelo acids ride the lingering flavours.
Great year, good wine, even the Petite Chateau shows incredible in 2010, just needed some time, to really show itself. — 5 days ago
This would be a fantastic table wine for 7$ or under.
Perhaps it is a joke on the bourgeois...
Tart, dusty, cranberry with gritty tannins. Slight acidity to bring it all to the end.
given this wine. I would not spend more than 13$ , at a restaurant. Oh well! — 8 days ago
Smells of dried prunes.
Carmel like mouthfeel at first, with blueberry skins, cranberry, tart fruits.
pepper, huge new oak tannins, light acidity.
Some of that minty tarragon, that I tend to find in Nebbiolo.
A decent wine for the sub 20$ I scored it for..

Very floral nose, a blend of wild aromatics.
Eucalyptus-mint, crushed, slow roasted berry, Greek oregano, vanillin. Pipe tobacco. Thoughts of my needing to return to España, for the most excellent, crazy well priced vino. The Moro wines, all have Braille on the bottle labels.
Acid-oak shaker blend seasoned this well.

Minted berry jam.
Medium heft, cigar wrapped cedared fruit leather. Pencil! Haven’t tasted that in a CDP in a few years, mint. All brought together, and shown the door, by a barrel that has been tempered by time. Stellar vintage.
Young, and deliciously approachable. — 9 days ago
