We must be getting old as my homeboy & I remembered when this was 20$— now it’s north of 79$. First, that incredible, shimmering copper color, as if a siren call to the rewards that await. So many layers that never seem to stop: sherry- like on nose, with high pitched iodine, but deeper & round on the palate. Hints of bergamot, cinnamon bark, oyster mushroom, clove, faded citrus fruit. So so alive. What a treat. Part 2 with slow roasted grapefruit chicken, roasted eggplant with yogurt sauce & the early innings of a another wild Mets win. — 4 days ago

Dark red with orangey/brownish rim. Fruity and spices on the nose. Very smooth on the mouth, explosion of fresh fruit. Nice wine. — 9 days ago
Dark ruby coloration. On the nose, cherry, cassis, dark berry, smokiness, chocolate and florals. On the palate, full bodied and rich mouthfeel, blackberry, dark berry, lots of jammy fruit, smokiness, vanilla, florals. But predominantly a fruity wine with a very long finish. Tannins are still present but are nicely balanced and matured. — 21 days ago
Deep Ruby red color with aromas of black and red fruit, with a soft cedar fragrance. This 100% Tempranillo wine, from 100-Year Old vines, was aged for 24 months in French oak barrels. On the palate flavors of ripe red cherries, dried fruit, cacao, spice and tobacco. The wine still has plenty of acidity and soft round tannins, well structured. Full-bodied, long finish ending with some oak and earthy mineral ending. Very nice, drink now! — 18 days ago
2015 vintage, drank 18 July 2021.
Dark eed with purple rim. Soft tannins, ash and berries on the mouth. Soft tannins, velvety blackcurrant and oak on the mouth. — 6 days ago
A bold nose of leather, smoke and ripe red fruits, this is a big, bold wine. Paired with chicken adobo and Downton Abbey, the palate harkens forth notes of balsamic vinegar, bloody meat, leather and ripe strawberries with velvety tannins and a tart, lingering acidity. It’s 13 years old, and yet still could benefit from some aging, yet very good. A beautiful rioja. #Tempranillo #spanishrioja — 10 hours ago
