R. López de Heredia

Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Classic Lopez. Took a while to open up, but went through a lovey evolution over the course of the evening. — 9 months ago

Superiore Bricco Appiani Barbera d'Alba 2010

Certainly the most serious Barbera I think I’ve had, from a very traditional producer. I believe this vintage is actually his current release, which is a bit nuts (reminds me of Lopez de heredia...but with barbera). Deep dark color with deep red fruit on the nose and lots of good earth and some leather. Finish has good refreshing acidity, but this is better after 1 hr in the decanter vs 4. Very nice. — 2 years ago

Bodegas Beronia

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1981

The strength here is its freshness-tasted this vintage out of a magnum, at a spanish wine tasting, & was very similar. Has the tension but not depth or idiosyncrasies of rioja alta or lopez with this age, I think. — 4 years ago

Sublime classic Rioja. Taste the age through the muted cherry and cobwebs.

L'Anglore Tavel Red Rhône Blend 2018

I had this with a 2009 Lopez de Heredia Rosado and they were both unique and wonderful in very different ways. — 2 years ago

VS Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León Tempranillo Blend 2007


2007 Mauro. HB w J&L B, J&J Koz. Drank last, after the ‘95 Artadi and ‘68 Lopez de Heredia. Great! Most lush and fruit-forward of the bunch. Loved it. — 3 years ago

François Mercier

Bonne Neige Brouilly Gamay 2016

Floral tension, ripe strawberries, and volcanic minerality combine to make a feminine personality. Given its birth in Brouilly, it displays Mediterranean qualities of jammy fruit and iron. Acid stays lively while structured tannins give depth and adaptability with food. As always, Cru Beaujolais gives high QPR no matter the vintage. Drinking this bitch young as one should. — 5 years ago

Clarke-Claudon Vineyards

Wild Iris Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Tastes like a Fino sherry with all the phenolic and nutty notes. Glorious (and totally my style). I would have guessed maybe an old chenin. At least this year extremely recommended. I have had a Lopez heredia white rioja that elements reminded me of this. — 2 years ago

San Fereolo

Coste di Riavolo Bianco Langhe Riesling Gewürztraminer 2014

So many perfect things about this wine. Natty harmony. Perfect with briny olives or morel mushrooms. I could have mistaken this for R. Lopez de. Herredia, Rioja or Domaine Octavin, Jura. — 4 years ago
