A nose of delicious raspberry scone, with bits of Spanish flake salt.
Lots of salinity, at first lip pursing, then some of those tart alpine fruits come out, high altitude blueberry, sage, and wild bramble berry patches. Forest floor herbs, dark, dank, and savory. — 6 hours ago
A nose of vanilla and plum.
Cassis and tabaco, prune, preserves, licorice. Roasted fruits over cedar staves. This wine is a very solid C-D-P, with elegance and finesse, and just a touch of heat.
Such great wines. Lucky to find this one at a sub 30$ price point. Yum! — 17 days ago
Mezcla tina, or “Red Blend”
Syrah dominant, a helluva barnyard nose!
Heavier bodied, with bits of blueberry and apple skins, some sweet grass, tobacco, aged perfectly, (I got lucky), with the tannins complementing the star fruit acidity.
50% Syrah, 14% Petite Syrah, 26% Garnacha, 10% Petit Verdot.
This is the first red wine I have had from this area, usually known for Pisco production. — 24 days ago
A wonderful nose of fruit fields growing through hay mulch
Saline! Lots of it immediately upon lip touchdown. Really lovely ripe fruits, ripe in a high acid kind of way, show well - blueberry, pomegranate, Cara Cara, jolly rancher red. Crisp flavors, that minke well with mild tannin ends. A truly great wine, that is in great demand at my local Latin wine shop, so I always need to grab 2 -! — 19 days ago
A lovely nose of roasting green pepper.
This is a well made and well executed wine,
With medium bodied, dark, thick, lovely fruit a slurry of everything I am looking for right now.
Do not be alarmed! Mezcla translates as ‘Blend’ and what a well made blend this is.

Really well balanced black fruits, subdued acids and little oak. You can tell this was made from a younger generation, wanting the wine to speak for itself without too much manipulation. Thanks to the friends who brought it from the vineyard in Italy,.

Same notes - this has become my muse, my heart of darkness for the evening, such a lovely wine with so many dark things wrapped into it, tabaco, dark berry, black licorice, roasted stout grains, wow. Nice re-entry wine! Such great aging. — 5 days ago
A very light color, garnets and glass.
The nose is spicy - almost like a curry of southern Spanish spices leading with Tarragon.
Looks may be deceiving! Huge meaty flavors, with dank forest floor, tabaco, pencil lead, licorice, granite, dusty cellar, and popsicle Stick tannins with lip chomping coriander acidity.
A cornucopia of expression. This is not to be missed. Definitely not a pedestrian wine.
