Mike's

Bodegas Montecillo

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo

So this is wine #3 on Mike's journey to finding the best bottle of wine under 15 bucks. If you want a fancy wine smell this ain't the place. I've been sniffing my glass like a bored Florida man sniffing paint and nothing. In my opinion it's great, not over powering at all. If I were to give it a smell it would probably be California wildfires from a couple of states away; light, but distinct.

After taste is amazing and pairs well with the premade butter chicken they have at costco. I can't emphasize how great of a deal that is. Same price per weight as normal chicken breast, but comes pre-prepped. Hints of cherry aftertaste. Not sure if that is due to the color playing mind tricks.

Had my first quarantine zoom date this week. Not sure if the wine helped, but the date on the bottle (2012) gave something to talk about before I started to fake that my internet started glitching.

100% Whole Cluster Las Madres Vineyard Syrah 2015

So glad I tried some of Mike's syrahs this year. Just awesome aromatics with each site bringing something to the table. Great meaty notes that remind you are drinking a syrah and not some manipulated red wine. No hint of heat. Stemmy of course but the fruit is there. Don't have it side by side but the halcon might be my favorite. — 3 years ago
