Gran Sasso

Bodegas Beronia

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

NOSE: Chocolate, plum, a little chili pepper (?). Smells good but pretty restrained.

TASTE: cedar, muted berries, mustard seed, spices. Strong acidity. The chili powder/BBQ flavor comes through more. This is good but not as good as the regular Beronia (to me), which was much more dramatically flavorful and a good deal for the price. This is nice, and subtler, but not such a great deal. 91.

Marqués de Murrieta

Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011

The ‘11 Ygay is drinking like a classic. It’s a big, oaky blend that’s deep ruby in color with scents of graphite and cocoa. Deep dark flavors with firm tannins and a hint of vanilla. Still has lots of legs. — 7 days ago
