Tres Picos Campo de Borja Garnacha 2017

Licorice, blackberry, strawberry jam, caramel candy... This is very rich. The palate is wonderful with a very strong acid drive, a great width with a nice thickness on the sides which can be broken down in matter and a radiant black fruit. Some tannins that stick up on the sides in the rear and a slight drying effect and a very long finish with again a typical licorice touch, blackberries and a nice tangyness which makes you crave for another glass. Wow this is great and it puts a lot of fancy Châteauneuf du pape to shame! — 12 days ago

Jakab - Tokaji Furmint És Harslevelu 2018

The first nose is made of ripe pear, then beeswax, white flowers and a buttery thing in the background. Quite inviting and complex. The palate is well designed with a strong acid drive and a very tight front. There is a bit of pear and lemon all around. It becomes very wide out of a sudden to form a sphere in mid palate, with almost a tannic touch on the sides. Pear all along and a very long fruity finish, with that almost tannic touch and a tiny bit of bitterness in the end. That buttery thing which could be felt on the nose is present all along too, and more specifically in the end. Wow this is unexpected. This is high level!

Bodega de Bardos

Reserva Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2016

Licorice, cherry, black currant, a bit of oak too. Superb palate with a strong acid drive, some nice cherry and currant notes, a nice width with matter on the sides, grainy, joyful tannins which tend to dry a bit a very long finish with fruit, meat juice, a tiny but of salt and a subtle bitterness. It would have been better with food but that's a great tasting experience by itself — 4 days ago

Munfrina Dolcetto d'Alba 2016

Licorice, tar, blackberries, cherry and a bit of almond on the nose. This is great! The palate is very lovely with some strong acid backbone, a nice tangy cherry all along, a good width with a lovely matter on the sides. It's not thick, it's rather light but very playful and fruity. Some tannins kick in in mid palate which give a bit of a drying effect in a mid palate sphere. It's quite round in there! The finish is all fruits, a bit of bitterness and thee tannins drying up a notch. Very lovely and joyful wine. — 11 days ago
