Wine Ninja. "If the wine doesn't match the food, throw the food ...
Nose of blackberry incense, with an edge of that fruit smoke blend.
Lighter on the Cab spectrum, engaging although, as there is a mineral element that is highly refreshing and keeps me coming back.Pom fruit, cherry applesauce whispers of vanilla.. Whispy tannins, whispy acid, a lot of whispering in the wine..

Juicy nose of a stroll though an almost ripened orchard of peaches.
Medium bodied, fresh, flavorful.
Black cherry yoghurt, fresh white peach, mint,
The peach in this is so freaking fresh and delicious, wrapped with the lightest acidity, a touch of lollipop tannins..

A nose of berry and alderwood
Tart berry, eucalyptus, tobacco, cedar, river stone, and hints of prune juice.
This finishes with licking kumquats off of a cigar box. That citrus acidity.
This was the perfect year for this part of Spain, and continues to make me glad I stored a few away..

Stinky little nose of plant fat - olive oil, canola.
Good old school wine here, rustic, mild tempered fruit, nothing too loud or cloying, pepper, spice, hints of bark and grit. A hint of acidity at the tip and immediate sides of the tongue, with a nice finish. — 12 days ago
Whiffing a farm here, hay, animal dander, decomposing matter.
My favorite kind of nose, as I knows it will lead on to a big bodied wine with layers of dark fruits.
Dark raspberry, fruit pith, a touch of vegetal, and lots of eucalyptus. Bold, spicy, high octane, Saturday night.

Blanched almonds and dried prunes,
A nice, well rounded nose of old world.
Still a bit tight, and could use a few more years to smooth out.
Heavier bodied, Licorice, horehound, pomegranate, black fruit.
Mouth filling tannins, chewy!
This is a great producer, loved for years. And I always have one on the shelf. — 11 days ago
Perfect nose of great and subtle fruit.
Like the first whiff of my grocery store fruit aisle.
Dark berry skin, dark fruit, no sugars, yet full of dark flavor. Acidity and tannin playing very well with one another, like two kids jumping rope.
Winery, worth looking into.

Smells of an old dusty cellar,
Stocked with oozing pots of fig jam.
After a couple of hours this shows really well, medium body, juicy, dark dried cherries, tarragon, Focused blueberry. Fruity in the best of ways, wondrous mouthfeel, full, and all encompassing. This is really grabbing my attention. Old world, rustic terroir, this is like a high $$ Cali wine. Wow, and yum. Gonna grab at least 6 more of these. — 19 days ago
