Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2010

Vintage 2010 | Not everyone’s friend, a style in it’s own - acquired taste. Very brownish red colour. Expressive smell, overripe pear, starting with high bitters. Old wood, mocca. Beautiful expression and balance, dinnerwine. Great effort. — 17 hours ago

Acquired taste, hard to acquire wine!- well done, @Peter van den Besselaar! This used to sell only a few years ago for 25/30$, now it’s close to a 100$, if you can find it in the NY area. Love that wine…

I love this wine, very unique but also pleasurable. I’ve served it to neophytes who love it as well. We are lucky to get a small allocation for around $35/bottle.

Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Can’t recall why I ever stopped buying this, as it’s amazing!! Another example of fellow Americans drinking their wines too young.

Medium gold color. One of the best Chard noses ever! Reminds me of high end white burgundies! Wine is well balanced between butter and citrus. Could use more depth and a longer finish, but awesome on a lovely Memorial Day!!

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1961

Tasted blind. Reddish amber tawny, translucent. Corky nose. Notes of light red fruit, cherry, herbs. Ethereal in it's delivery and still chewy. Very refined. The light cork taint makes it difficult to guess and the team's guesses are all over the planet (I'm in Bordeaux land). There is some good stuff inside this but cork taint comes on more with air... bummer. (M's 60th bday 3rd of 14) — 24 days ago

I enjoyed this one. Not very oaky taste, very good chilled. I could drink plenty more of it. — 5 hours ago

Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Dark ruby red. Sharp sour cherry and berry fruit. This is good, but honestly is not as good as the ratings claim it is and certainly not worth the price. — 16 days ago

First impression: the bottle is heavy! Probably the heaviest bottle from a US producer I have gotten a hand on. Good thing that what’s inside the bottle has the substance to back up the bottle weight.

The nose is relatively restrained with perfectly ripen plum, cassis, cedar, olive, cigar box, and touch of forest floor. The palate is more opulent than the nose suggested, with rich ripe black fruit core. Very good texture. Silky tannins.
