Rioja Vina El Pago 2017

Really nice. On first few sips it reminded me of a spicy, more tannic Beaujolais, but with air developed much more tobacco, cedar box, some dust, dried cherries, and a big bunch of herbs. Need to drink more of this. — 8 hours ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

The 2008 R. Lopez Heredia ‘Vina Tondonia Reserva’ Rioja is a marvelous effort from this challenging vintage in La Rioja. The wine is a complex blend of Tempranillo (75%), and Garnacho (15%), with Graciano and Mazuelo (5%) that was aged for six years before bottling. The wine is might be showing a bit more depth and concentration than the ’07 bottling while the ’07 is slightly more geared towards finesse. Deep white truffle and wild blackberry notes combine with shades of cinnamon, orange rind and sour kirsch on this gorgeous bouquet. The palate is wonderfully viscous and concentrated. Layers of sour red and ark fruits collide with minerals, smoky terroir and shades of blood orange zest and peat moss on this simply gorgeous palate. Rich and layered, yet having a sterling sense of tension, this magical new wine will cellar well for at least another fifteen years. Drink 2020-2038- 95 — 2 months ago

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend

Ten because Kittson and I both loved it. Rare for a red. Fruit on the front and my palette language isn’t good enough to understand what I’m rating on the finish. But it’s good, I know that. Delish. — a month ago

Presqu'ile Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Slightly funky nose at first and then shifts to more classic Chard aromas. The acidity is backward at first and then it opens up and gets more tension to go along the nice roundness and freshness, pretty good balance and nice wine without being great. 88-89

Nez un peu bizarre à l’ouverture mais cela s’estompe sur des arômes classiques de Chardo. La tension est un peu en retrait au départ mais avec de l’air l’acidité se montre plus présente pour en faire un bel ensemble, ouvert, assez rond et frais, rien d’exceptionnel mais très bien.

#garnachatintorera #alicantebouschet I’m stoked because I tasted it blind and thought this is Tintorera! And I was right. Deep color. With Tintorera I’m starting to understand the vibe. It’s Syrah color and aromas (savoury, spicy and peppery) with the richness and juiciness of Garnacha Tinta. This is a Basque winery that I believe just buys bulk and commercializes their wines, or at least this series of wines. More or less 6€ a bottle in #Spain its a killer deal of a wine. I personally am not a fan of cartoon like labels. — 23 days ago
