Rioja Mazuelo de la Quinta Cruz 2018

12. 5% transparent Ruby. Nose of candied orange peel and bitter cherry. Comes off a little ripe at first, but keep it down at cellar temp with some air and this is real nice. Earthy. Like if Burgundy had a Carignane baby. — a month ago

Gran Reserva Viña Albina Tempranillo Blend 2009

Surprisingly I expected this to be tight. But it was ready. In fact a hint of pirate rum on the nose at open which blew off. Perhaps not much left in the tank here. But very pleasant and great with our meal. — a month ago
