Delicious cava! — a year ago
Jeff Runquist Wines Silvaspoons Vineyard ‘R’ Touriga 2013: This was an unfamiliar & new wine for me. Served by my sister, this California grown, Portuguese varietal was round & fruity with medium tannins & a nice soft finished. It was the perfect companion to start off the evening meal however it left me very intrigued to try more of this winemaker’s work! Seems they explore unique grape varietals from around the world. Sign me up! Cheers 🌍🍷 — 6 days ago

This is a delicious nine-year-old Rioja. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Showing black fruits with wood, licorice, vanilla, earth, coffee, light vinaigrette, black tea, peppercorn, wet leaves, spices and light herbs.
Full bodied and smooth with medium plus acidity.
Nice finish with spices and tangy raspberries.
Needs a couple of hours of airtime to open up properly. Still young and will be better in the next 5 to 10 years.
Rich and engaging. Spicy and tasty.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers. Great with the brie cheese.
A blend of 88% Tempranillo and 12% Graciano. Aged for 26 months in French Oak barrels.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

A tasty rioja! Well balanced that gave me hints of strawberries. Not too heavy. Very drinkable as we start the fall season. I plan to buy another bottle to share...when it's safe to do so. — 6 days ago
Nose has oxidized pear slice, browning butter, toasted salt, candied pineapple, beeswax, toasted pistachio and dry crushed granite.
Palate has dried apricot, dried lemon peel, dehydrated green apple slices, toasted ginger, un-salted cashew, (minor) tangerine juice, (minor) vanilla oak notes, yet while showing zingy acidity and a never ending finish. Weighty and light on the palate, simultaneously.
Always one of our favorites in the RLdH lineup, the Blanco's will and can age for decades. This bottle should be close to the current release.
90% Viura / 10% Malvasía; Decanted 3 hours.
Amazing wine...I NEED to find the Gran Reserva, but need much more of this one!
A perfect wine to end cap a long weekend, Labor Day (US), or any weekend really! — 22 days ago
