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 — 7 hours ago

Lealtanza Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2011

Garnet color with orange highlights. 100% Tempranillo. The tertiary notes and flavors are in the forefront. Lovely aromas of leather, dried rose petals, smoke and spices. Pallet features red fruit, cocoa and coffee. Extremely well balanced with smooth tannins and a very long finish. Quite austere. The aging has certainly benefited this wine. — 12 days ago

Drank 6/7/22.

This was nice with grilled sausage.

Nose of cherry and baking spice. Flavors of blueberry, red cherry, and toasted oak. Finishes with red fruit and wood notes. A bit quick on the finish, but a fun, well balanced rioja.

3/22/7/4/3 + 50 = 89 pts

Easy drinking.

So this is from the time my wife graduated high school. Time flys but wine keeps getting better and reminiscing about the good ol’ days is the best part. Cheers. — 19 days ago

Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild-Vega Sicilia

Macán Rioja Tempranillo 2015

Produced by Vega Sicilia and Bodegas Benjamin De Rothschild, aged in mostly French oak (new and 1 year old) for about 12 months, deep Ruby with aromas of fresh fruits and spice. On the palate flavors of fresh youthful berry fruit, cherry, licorice, vanilla and well integrated cedar. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit character, cacao and cedar character , very nice! — a day ago

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2011

Неожиданно благородное вино для своего почтенного возраста вкус одновременно молодого и зрелого вина, немного таниновое с ягодным тёплым вкусом. Аромат тёплый и стабильный. Вкус устойчивый даже клубника не смогла ухудшить вкус — 7 days ago
