Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Founded by Don Rafael López de Heredia y Landeta, a student in the art of wine making. Blend of 65% Tempranillo, 25% Garnacho, 10% Mazuelo and Graciano, aromas of sweet berry fruits and spice notes. On the palate cherry and ripe strawberry flavors with citrus notes, cinnamon spice. Fine smooth tannins, long finish, well balanced, ending with fruit and earthy tones. Nice value. — 3 days ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2010

Vintage 2010 | Not everyone’s friend, a style in it’s own - acquired taste. Very brownish red colour. Expressive smell, overripe pear, starting with high bitters. Old wood, mocca. Beautiful expression and balance, dinnerwine. Great effort. — 6 days ago

Acquired taste, hard to acquire wine!- well done, @Peter van den Besselaar! This used to sell only a few years ago for 25/30$, now it’s close to a 100$, if you can find it in the NY area. Love that wine…

I love this wine, very unique but also pleasurable. I’ve served it to neophytes who love it as well. We are lucky to get a small allocation for around $35/bottle.

Marqués de Murrieta

Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Dark ruby red. Sharp sour cherry and berry fruit. This is good, but honestly is not as good as the ratings claim it is and certainly not worth the price. — 21 days ago

Mas Serra

Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2018

There is a little funk at first. Then comes tapenade, fig, bacon, blackberry, Provence herbs. The palate is very nice and smooth although quite acid driven, but with a soft mouthfeel and a nice blackberry note. There is a good width and a bit of weight, a spherical mid palate with a good tannic kick leaving a layer of dust on the finish which is mainly fruity with a bacon note. It's very surprising to find that bacon note that I usually associate with Northern Rhone syrah. This is a very good surprise. — 17 days ago

Monte Real Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo

Had it in 2021 and it was big bodied with nice dark berry nose with a smooth finish. Texture was balanced and the wine is very nice. — 21 hours ago
