Garnatxa Blanca 2020

I’ve never had a wine from the region of Catalonia near the border of Aragon! Would love to visit the area to see Antoni Gaudi’s architecture in person. This wine made my jawls pucker with the first sip but ended up being really light and refreshing on the palate. — 2 days ago

L'Anit Terra Alta Carignan

Bought at a good wine retailer in Barcelona. Made from 100% Carignan grapes from 80 year old vines and vinified in concrete tanks - zero oak influence. I made no notes but I do remember enjoying it as a great food wine and highly savoury. Drank this last week in Spain. — a month ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2010

This is not your beach quaff rose. Everything written by the other reviewers on this site is true and more. A singular, incredibly complex wine the deserves the hype. Next bottles get several hours of slow ox. — 17 days ago

Viña Ardanza Reserva Selección Especial Tempranillo Blend 2010

Classically styled Rioja - exactly what one should expect. Lovely plummy fruit, a little heavy on the vanilla notes for my taste. Great backbone of acidity. — 6 days ago

Monte Real Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 1970

Pretty on the nose and amber at the edges. Orange peel, dark cherry, roses. All quite subtle. A little short and tart on the finish — 7 days ago

Mas de Boislauzon

Tintot Special Cuvée Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

We pulled this from our cellar and brought it to V. Mertz for dinner. We enjoyed a couple of other wines as aperitifs and then ultimately did what anyone given the opportunity should do: pair it with lamb chops. We poured it into a decanter while we enjoyed the conversation and opening courses. Given the setting, there were no formal notes however, I can confidently report that the 2015 “Tintot” absolutely slaps. From the first sip to the last, it was all balance, power and class. It was also a spectacular showcase for Mourvèdre. It was hard to fully judge color because the lighting was so low but it appeared to be nearly opaque. A touch feral with a slightly gamey element to it but there’s a great big ol’ basket of black and blue fruits with red and purple flowers, garrigue, some black pepper and cedar chest. Structure is still quite firm but totally enjoyable. While this is an unusual assemblage for the region, it still comes across as a wine from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This was my first “Tintot” and it has left quite the impression. Drink now with an hour decant or over the next 7-10 years. P.S. it probably goes without saying, but the pairing with lamb chops was sublime. — 7 days ago
