Rozas 1er Cru Vino de Paraje Grenache 2016

Brought to Tasting Group as a fun wine as it’s technically not testable. As usual, this was served double-blind. In the glass, the wine is a bright ruby color with a translucent core. It’s noticeably darker than it was when I first had this wine back in 2018. Back then, it was shockingly pale. The nose is powerful, massive in some ways with intensely perfumed fruit. Almost smelled like the taste of a Bomb Pop when you get to the part where the stick becomes exposed. On the palate, Rainier cherries and ripe brambles, with star anise, and a hint of pepper. Medium…bordering medium + acid with some really sneaky tannins. Finish is long. This wine still comes across quite primary yet, not quite as interesting as it was when I first tried it shortly after release. I’ll hold my remaining bottle to see what some additional age brings. I think some secondary characteristics could really help round this out. — a month ago

Rías Baixas Albariño 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Albariño from Bodegas Fillaboa is highly perfumed and mineral. Taut and focused in style, it offers spice-laced citrus, orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors underscored by a bracing core of acidity, finishing long and precise, with a refreshing snap of citrus zest. $22.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021) — 5 days ago

La Bruja Avería Rozas de Puerto Real Grenache 2018

Wonderful, juicy Garnacha. Not as ethereal as their Rozas 1er/single vineyard wines though. — 10 days ago

Bodegas Luis Pérez

El Muelle de Olaso Carrascal 2017

This Andalusian producer does a wonderful red, so jumped at chance to try the blanco, & what a treat,especially for 13$. Solidly medium to big bodied, notes of white flowers, savory lemon curd, & verbena. Begs for food. Made by Luis Perez, who apparently does an old school, non solera aged sherry as well. Unfortunately paired with yet another Mets loss… — 25 days ago

Exceptional - meant for supping. Unusual combination of fruity and earthy on the palate with plum and slight fig winning out at the lingering finish. Delightful! — 14 days ago
