Shafer Vineyards

Relentless Napa Valley Syrah Petite Sirah 2013

In 1979 John Shafer founded Shafer Vineyards in the Stags Leap District of Napa. A blend of 97% Syrah & 3% Petite Sirah, notably small PS% which varies each year. The work of Elias Fernandez, fruit from La Mesa Vineyard, a ridgetop of shallow soils & volcanic ash. Stunning red with full black fruit aromas and pepper spice with floral edge. On the palate blackberry flavors, spice, oak and earthy notes. Big fine tannins, vivid acidity, good balance on lingering finish ending with cacao tones. Will cellar well. — 5 years ago

Bodegas Uvaguilera Aguilera

Palomero Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2005

The producer is using Tinto Fino not Tempranillo. Respectfully, requested Delectable change.

Ten years in bottle, time to check in on my first bottle of six.

On the nose, dark currants. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, baked black plum, raspberries & ripe strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, crushed limestone minerals, dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, steeped fruit tea, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes with red & dark fresh florals.

The body was big and very full with a hour in the decanter it moves to more medium full with another hour in the decanter. The structure, length, tension and balance are just arriving to a sweet spot. Still plenty of life left in this 05. Another 10 years and perhaps more. The tannins are still pronounced but softened & round with a strong dusty presence. The fruits are; gorgeous, sexy, lush & ripe. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum, creamy raspberries, raisins, ripe cherries & strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, dark chocolate, crushed limestone minerals, a fair amount of dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, hints of mint, dry herbs, steeped fruit tea, black licorice, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes, used espresso roast with red & dark, purple, fresh florals. The acidity is near perfect. The long, ripe, lush, well balanced finish is excellent and lasts minutes. Beautiful wine with sex-appeal.

Sure David T but Tinto Fino is a colloquial name, used by locals, and they won’t deny it is Tempranillo, they just have their own (pet) name for it. But for Delectable and anyone else it is Tempranillo.

@Amy Huson I am simply respectful of a producers culture and preference of terminology. I respect producers above all, which is why I photo profile them and their properties in all my posts. While I understand it’s Tempranillo, it’s wasn’t their choice of terminology to use on their label. Hence, I respect their preference or choice to use Tino Fino. Also, not every wine drinker will know there are a number different grape names used in Spain and Portugal for Tempranillo, (Tinto Fino, Ojo de Liebre, Tinto de Toro, Tinto Madrid, and Cencibel. In Portugal, Tempranillo is often referred to as Tinta Roriz and Aragonez.) If a person saw my post and decided to look for the bottle in a shop, they would see Tino Fino on the label and not Tempranillo. I also wanted to avoid them thinking it might be a different bottling rather than the same. Thank you for the discussion & engagement.. Cheers!
