Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2009

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. — 12 days ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

The famed #lopezdeheredia - Their 2008 release year matched the year we got married so we ordered this at a nice restaurant on our 13th anniversary. I asked the sommelier to cool it in an ice bucket a bit and so it took some time to open up in the glass. One of the best old school #rioja - subtle dark fruit, forest floor and distinct mushroom and truffle aromas on the nose. The biggest surprise for me on the palate was the incredible freshness and bracing acidity. Forest floor, leather and dark fruit as the backup chorus. This is still such a young wine. Delicious and versatile pairing wine - worked so well with a brined chicken breast with a puff pastry side stuffed with morel mushroom and lobster. — 2 months ago

Viña Bosconia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

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 — 8 days ago

Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Founded by Don Rafael López de Heredia y Landeta, a student in the art of wine making. Blend of 65% Tempranillo, 25% Garnacho, 10% Mazuelo and Graciano, aromas of sweet berry fruits and spice notes. On the palate cherry and ripe strawberry flavors with citrus notes, cinnamon spice. Fine smooth tannins, long finish, well balanced, ending with fruit and earthy tones. Nice value. — a month ago

Nose is pleasant. Strawberries.

Palate is very clean strawberry fruit. A hint of oxidation. Nicely vinous. Good acidity.
