Bodega Cauzón (Ramón Saavedra)

Cauzón Vino de la Tierra Norte de Granada Tempranillo Merlot

Unexpectedly complex tempranillo with some firm tannins that reveal a new side of this grape. Into it, even if it shows some VA. Notes of raspberry, strawberry and maybe even rhubarb come to fore before cascading into smoked meats and hints of tobacco. — 11 days ago

La Bota de Fino No. 68 Sherry 2016

N: Still like visiting an old boat graveyard. As we move further from the saca date, June/‘16, the nose is more muted. Almost meaty, With those great notes of flor wafting through. Caramel, but less flashy, nuts, almonds, hazelnuts.
P:Still broad, saline and buttery, brown butter at times, oranges, spicy notes, dry brown sugar. Amazing acidity.
On a 90° day al fresco in Philly, very refreshing. I still marvel.
(One more left, I sense it’s day is due.)

Almacenista Palo Cortado de Jerez Palomino Fino

This Palo Cortado is delish.
Refined, polished, lots of lacquer, wood, secondary flavors. Oranges, nail polish,
a whirlwind of sensory delights.
20° I think and you’d never know, till later.

La Bota de Fino 91 Macharnudo Alto Palomino Fino

🍇Equipo Navazos, one of the leading stars in the rebirth of handcraft Sherry. The bota de Fino 91 is stunning with a concentration that is rarely seen in the fino category. Aged for an average 10 years gives it a sensation that the flor has started to fade quite a bit as the wine is almost starting to flirt with an amontillado in its characters. Serve it at 10 degrees and let it rise to 12-14 degrees while you enjoy this piece of art.

👃Pronounced intense, dense and very complex aromas, remarkably aromatic and round edged for being classified as a fino. Bruised apples, orange zest, sourdough, green olives, and Brazil nuts with a salty, iodine and seaweed character on the lead guitar.
Bone dry palate with pronounced flavour intensity. The salty mineral backbone brings freshness and tension through the dense mid palate through a long expansive and chalky finish.
Meditative.
