Celler Frisach

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. — 21 days 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. — 12 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 — 2 days ago

McHenry Vineyard

Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2019

Popped and poured; served with cedar plank salmon for Father’s Day. No formal notes but consistent with previous experiences. Bruised strawberry, cherry, pomegranate, mushroom, a kiss of baking spices and a touch of VA. Way more open for business than typical from McHenry at this stage, but the challenges of the vintage explain it all. Drink this vintage now. — 7 days ago

La Rioja Alta

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. — a day ago

Mount Eden Vineyards

Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2016

Absolutely an amazing wine! Thank you @Ron R for recommending this! I am experiencing so many elements at the same time. Reminisce of an aged Chenin Blanc where you get creaminess almost wax cheese rind and honey. Picking up an almond sticky bun. Not really acidity but unique freshness of lemon, peaches & yellow apples. Golden hay in color, Med+ body w/ nice long finish. Drinking this w/ a nice chill presents some nice acidity.
Hard not to make a comparison (sigh) to something I paid a lot more for and enjoyed...not so much! Love the balance and 13.5 alc.

@Dawn E. So happy you enjoyed this as much as I did. Hanzell Sebella at $22 per is just as strong. Get some!
