Farráh Lodi Syrah 2015

Simple yet likable label design. Dark as night. Smells like fresh cooked rice and berries. Persian yellow rice. Or something like that. An aromatic grain with maybe some butter in it. Not quite the ‘bacon’ of some Syrah, but similar. Flavors are great. Berry compote and bitter greens with balsamic. Good cough syrup (is that a thing lol?!). This is an unapologetic big Syrah with lots of extracted tannin and a healthy bite, but it is very tasty. — a month ago

La Rioja Alta

Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2015

Ruby in color with a wide brick/ reddish rim.

Dry on the palate with medium acidity.

Showing cherries, currants, plums, oak, tobacco, licorice, earth, light vanilla, dark chocolates, spices, coffee, peppercorn and eucalyptus.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This recently released, iconic wine from Rioja, is already drinking very nicely, although still young.

Showing an elegant mouthfeel with nice complexity. Nicely balanced and tasty. A good quality wine.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

Wine Advocate 95 points.

A great sipping wine, and good with food too.

A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano. Aged in American oak barrels for 4 years.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Winemaker's Blend California Red Blend 2020

Really smooth wine, leaves a lovely aftertaste, not too sharp and an easy drinker (the wine not me).

In my local corner shop I paid £9.99, a little expensive, I'd expect to see these prices in BP/Marks and Spencer or waitrose, however I like to support my local independent shop so I took a chance and glad I did!

BTW I'm not drinking in my local park, it's the only option near my house 😁
