Goru 18 M Monastrell Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

At PnP it’s juicy, bold, deep, spicy. As it opened it showed itself to be really
delicious. Lots of smooth tannins, some oak, and good balance. Def drinks way bigger than the under $20 Costco price.

Pure but simplistic. A little rough or coarse around the edges. I disagree with 94 points #Parker because while pure and clean, it is overly stoic and slightly boring and lacks complexity. #calatayud #garnacha — 22 days ago

Albahra Garnacha Tintorera 2019

Lush earthy notes of forest floor and then raspberries and lavender. Complex but drinkable. Apparently the only Envinate grown on mainland Spain. — 13 days ago

Delicious limited production white wine from #Ribeiro the best wine I’ve ever had from Ribeiro. It’s amazing the lees work on this wine it seems like it was fermented in oak and it’s just skilled winemaking that gives it an amazing structure and creaminess. — 8 days ago

I had this at Cal Jondal in Ibiza. Perhaps directly from the winery might be the best way.

Paisaje de las Islas Forastera Blanca 2017

9.1

The wine world is so incredibly vast, life’s too short to drink the same thing all the time. Let’s all drink adventurously, shall we? Here’s a great example. Ever heard of the grape Forastera Blanca? Not likely unless you’ve been to a tiny speck of an island off the Altlantic coast of North Africa, named La Gomera. The smallest of the Canary Islands, it is the homeland for this unusua grape that has been revived commercially by Mr. Agustín Farráis. These own-rooted 100-year-old vines yield a wine that smells of pear skin, sea air and dried yellow herbs. Flavors of crushed stone, sea air, citrus pith, and herbs linger with a faint struck-flint note in the finish, as if the wine, in the end wants to make sure you never forget the volcano. — a day ago

I found this lacking acidity. Slightly cloudy. While interesting, I wouldn’t drink more than a glass or two. #canarias #spain — 13 days ago
