Albahra Garnacha Tintorera 2018

Nice acidity and good amount of minerality. More savoury than other Garnachas I’ve drunk with good complexity for the price. Nice with lamb and rosemary. Paid $24 at Vino Carta. — 2 months ago

TOR Kenward Family Wines

Tierra Roja Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This is amazing - on the nose you get a damp concert barrel room. Deep dark fruit with dark chocolate and big grip with tannins that are semi-eternal. I under rated this last time - this is my wine of the year (so far). No wonder Parker loved this. Cheers — 3 months ago

Flama Roja Como Vino Al Mundo Tecate Nebbiolo

An unusual but pleasing expression of Nebbiolo, coming through with dark fruit like plums and figs, with some pyrazine goodness balancing things out with flavors of jalapeño, and an unmistakable taste of something smoky, almost like beef jerky and leather, on the finish. — 11 days ago


Viña Roja Single Vineyard Carignan 2010

Very uncommon blend of Carignan with Syrah AND some Chardonnay.
It tastes still very young this purple red wine with lots of tannins and acidity still present. We noticed that newer vintages are 100 percent Carignan.....

Estoy totalmente de acuerdo. Destacan las notas terciarias de sus 18 meses de barrica. El nombre de debe a que de cada cepa del viñedo sólo se produce una botella.

Pago De Los Balagueses

Vino de Pago Garnacha Tintorera Merlot 2016

So much promise. It needs time in the cantina though.

Roja fruit.

James suckling must be a time traveller because he said it’s a 94. He’s probably coming back to 2020 from 2028.

Reserva Magna Carta Vinho Regional Alentejano 2009

My last bottle, and tonight it performs very well. Maybe it’s just sentimental.
Ripe red and blue fruits, with round and mouthwatering acidity. The body is lush and viscous. Long bitter sweet finish.

Bad Brewing Company

The Other Side Series Sour Farmhouse Ale

Nice sour from Bad Brewing down the road in Mason. Brewed with tart Michigan cherries, this actually reminds me a bit like a cross between of Supplication from Russian River and La Roja from Jolly Pumpkin (not quite as good as those, but not too far off, either). Bought this last year, and I definitely think the extra time has really improved it from what I can recall when I first tried it at the brewery. Highly recommend! — 2 months ago

Imanol Garay

Abiatu Tannat Cabernet Franc

Abiatu 2017 de Imanol Garay @imanolgaray. 95% #tannat y 5% #cabernetfranc. 18 meses de crianza en barricas de 228 l y ánforas de arenisca. Madiran. Francia. 14% vol.
Impresionante vista picota de capa media-alta con ribete carmesí. Lágrima fina y densa que tinta la copa.
Aromas que necesitan de aireación para desplegar un abanico cuyo protagonista es el aporte mineral de pedernal que se ve acompañado por sensaciones de fruta roja y negra (arándanos), recuerdos de hoja de tabaco y toques balsámicos.
Ataque inicial picante con un carbónico sutil. Muy buena acidez. Tanino rugoso y sensaciones sedosas. Fresco, complejo y de buen recorrido. Adictivo.
Vino personal de Imanol Garay al que hay que acercarse con la mente abierta y huyendo de estereotipos.
A mi, personalmente, me ha encantado, aunque le queda recorrido y, quizás, dar aún lo mejor de sí con más tiempo.
