Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

John W
9.1

Dark, dark ruby coloration. On the nose, black cherry, blackberry, spice, smoke, but predominately jammy dark fruit until it starts to open up and becomes more Smokey and earthy with minerals. On the palate, full body, plum, currant, smoke, tobacco, oak and after 10 years tannins are still strong but not overpowering. Medium to long finish of the dark fruit and some smoke. — a day ago

Isaac Fernandez Seleccion

Acentor Garnacha 2019

Such a great value (and Calatayud generally is a wildly underrated region for Grenache). Nose has concentrated essence of framboise ooze, along with a bit of spice and crushed rock dust. On the palate, it’s got dense flavor concentration, very pure fruit, nice acids (especially for a Grenache), and a bit of dusty tannins. So good. Should have gotten a case. — 3 days ago

Muradella Castrillón Red Blend 2012

This a unique field blend of heritage Galician varieties, mostly Mencia and even a bit of Godello.
Red berries, herbs predominate. Polished with an ample backbone. Terrific with food. Worth seeking out.

Bodegas Contador

Benjamin Romeo 'Contador' Tempranillo 2008

Bright crimson in colour. Notes of Camphor and Sandalwood together with tarry red and black fruits. A rich flavoursome and savoury palate - medium to full bodied - a fleeting tobacco note. Firm yet silky tannins. Very polished. One of the best Tempranillos (actually 86% Tempranillo and 14% Garnacha) I’ve ever had - up there with Vega Sicilia. Shows the versatility of the Tempranillo grape and its suitability to the warm climes of Spain. One of the 1001 Wines. 98 points from Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate. — 6 days ago
