That cherry and a hint of licorice on the nose. Beautiful full flavor with plenty of spice. Always a favorite and the again aging had only deepened the flavor. — a month ago
Explosive eucalyptus aroma, softer black fruit several layers below that, some violets, earthy fruit palate, dark coffee bitterness, solid foundation of acidity, tongue-hugging bold tannins and a finish that’s miles long. Bought this #mourvedre onsite at the vineyard around Thanksgiving 2019. It’s a boutique production from a vineyard site where the grape vines are growing near a large stand of ubiquitous Blue Gum Eucalyptus trees. This might be love it or hate it but it’s damn interesting. It was my wife’s birthday and we’d be waiting for the occasion to open it as we both loved it. I imagine a great pairing might be clove-studded lamb to pick up the menthol notes but we had it with pizza and it still held up well to the bold flavors of our various toppings. Fantastic. — 13 days ago
This Spanish red blend is medium dark and has a nose that is loaded with red fruit, peppery herbs and smoke. The Tierra de Castilla wine is made from 34% Cabernet Franc, 27% Syrah, 15% Petit Verdot, 12% Tempranillo, 7% Graciano and 5% Garnacha grapes. The fruit forward palate has eight months of oak showing and a firm set of tannins. The flavors are somewhat deep and quite juicy.

@ 6 years old, drinking perfect. Incredible balance of sweet and acid ensures it's not too flabby. Really complex & pleasant notes of apricot marmalade citrus orange peel cheese dried apricot stone and not overly honeyed. Each taste brings a new depth of flavor. 4.1/9.1 — a month ago
Nose is aromatic and ripe with a hint of stewed tomato to start off. Mid season cherry and really bright. Wish that overripe tomato was not there. It slowly blows off but on PNP it is prominent. Cherry flower. Tar. Spice. Nice nose. Not great. Palate is ripe and juicy but slightly broad with good balance, purity and freshness. Big tannins that I associate with Bussia. Good power and depth. No finesse. Solid not special. Maybe air helps?
UPDATE/ Air did help.this. 9.0 to 9.3. More silkiness and clearly defined fruit. — a month ago

Big and straightforward fruity red wine with chewy tannins. From San Marzano (tomato country) where the vineyards are tended more like gardens. The name TALO honors small family farmers. Aromas and flavors of jammy bramble berries, ripe plums and dark cherry. Hints of purple flowers, cocoa, vanilla, black pepper and earth. Bright acidity and richness. — 18 days ago
