Blanco De Guarda White Blend 2013

Vintage 2013 | on advice of the sommelier, really good Spanish white from a combination of local old grapes, high acidity and thrilling minerality, paired with a pata negra with dried watermelon that was smoked afterwards | at restaurant Pollevie — 6 days ago

Crianza Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

This is a really nice Tempranillo from Ribera Del Duero in Spain.

Showing black fruits with tobacco notes, earth, wood, coffee, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, cola and peppercorn.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and a tangy finish.

Good by itself or with food. Needs a few hours to open up properly, so give it time.

Tasty and fruit forward with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

12 Linajes Reserva Tempranillo 2012

This 9 year old Spanish wine is very tasty, once it opens up and much better the next day.

Showing black fruits with earth, tobacco, wood, earth, light vegetables, graphite, spices, peppercorn and smoke.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plenty of fruits. Nicely balanced with nice complexity. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

Long tangy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

Delicious once it opens up.

100% Tempranillo grapes were aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Excellent review as always.

Finca La Moura

Marqués de Toro Single Vineyard Mencia

Smells like yeast, earth, forest floor (old, musty pine). Tastes that way too. Not bone dry, a bit of fruit, some cherry (but subdued), a tiny dash of violet and tobacco, pretty smooth and well put together, Light-medium weight. I like it. Good value for $11, may buy again! — 6 days ago

This has a bracing cranberry tartness to stand up to its complex flavors. It stood up nicely to the vinegar and roasted flavors in our roast chicken salad. — 5 days ago
