Viña Gravonia Crianza Rioja Viura 2012

Starting to show it’s age and it is glorious. Dry honeydew, long almond, a hint of hazelnut.

We have one more bottle and I can’t wait to see where this lands in a couple years.

Viña Alberdi Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2018

Whoa! Super fragrant nose of black pepper and jasmine, without any fruits. Pastile perhaps? And whoa again! Super juicy, light tannins and smooth going down. Vanilla, jasmine, and violet pastile on the palate. Flavorwise it reminds me of brandy. Love this! — 14 days ago

La Rioja Alta

Reserva Viña Ardanza Rioja Tempranillo Garnacha 2015

2015 vintage. At the crest of drinkability meshed with cellar dweller. Right there. Decently priced so that you can hit it in both stages, multiple times. Medium body with solid acidity/tannins and full, frontal fruit. 9.6.23. — 16 days ago

This wine is drinking great — mellow tannins but still some pretty complex and delicious fruit for a 16 year old wine. 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha. — 3 days ago

Marqués de Riscal

Reserva Herederos del Marques de Riscal Rioja Tempranillo 2019

Chicken paprikash can be tricky with its complex peppers and rich creaminess. This wine was lush and lovely: a great pairing. — 11 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Shows a seamless integration of dried fruit, earth, balance, elegance and tannin. Showing well at this point and continuing to evolve in the direction of dried berries and plum, tobacco, herbs, iron and fine tannin. — 16 days ago

Bodegas Muga

Selección Especial Rioja Tempranillo 2004

Great vintage…consistent producer…showing perfectly at the moment. Slight sediment, but pure, sweet, Tempranillo fruit. Impressive balance; long sexy finish; perfect foil for NY steakhouse filet and corn soufflé brûlée. Labor Day, center court, near perfection. — 19 days ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2001

A fantastic vintage of tondonia. Still showing American oak on the palate but some secondary mushrooms/earth tones emerging. Will hold a while longer and fortunately have several more — 7 days ago
