Alta Vista Vineyard Moon Mountain District Gewürztraminer 2017

A gerwurz like no other. From high elevation, dry farmed old vines. More green melon, lemon, white rose, and lychee. So. Much. Acid. (especially for this variety). Stunning.

Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2010

This is not your beach quaff rose. Everything written by the other reviewers on this site is true and more. A singular, incredibly complex wine the deserves the hype. Next bottles get several hours of slow ox. — 10 days ago

L'Anit Terra Alta Carignan

Bought at a good wine retailer in Barcelona. Made from 100% Carignan grapes from 80 year old vines and vinified in concrete tanks - zero oak influence. I made no notes but I do remember enjoying it as a great food wine and highly savoury. Drank this last week in Spain. — 19 days ago

Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

Tighter & darker than the 2012, more closed & brooding. Turned earth, leather, a bit of tobacco leaf. The dark fruit is hidden beneath, along tin some dried orange peel VA.
On the palate this is tight as well, with finely grained tannins and zippy acidity. But there’s depth here and energy too.
This needs more time or serious decanting, unlike the ‘12.
Need to revisit tomorrow.
Next day: still dark & brooding on the nose - dark cherry, malty notes, wood polish.
On the palate this has lifted - bright cherry, cranberry acidity, a hint of kirsch, some dark cocoa, beef roast, yunnan tea like tannins.
I miss the focus though.
Not bad, still prefer the 2012!

Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2021

Recently released and it shows. Very bright, steely (0 malo) and reductive. Needs some time to figure out who it’s going to be when it grows up, but a nice wine none the less. It took previous vintages another 6-9 months to really start showing… — 11 days ago

Pretty on the nose and amber at the edges. Orange peel, dark cherry, roses. All quite subtle. A little short and tart on the finish — 2 hours ago
