Sketch Albariño 2019

Shay A

Raul Perez + scarcity (less than 150 cases) + underwater aging makes for a unique Albariño. I’m so glad @Mike R help me finally try this wine.

Tangerine x10! Aromatically, this comes across as an uber ripe Sancerre or Cali super SauvBlanc. Melon, limestone, citrus, mineral aromatically. Super nervy acidity with tangerine notes all over. Tart tropical fruits, gritty lemon/lime, white peach. Lengthy finish. Would be great with a mango chutney/mango pico over ceviche type dish. Albeit ripe, I still would have totally missed this if guessing blind.

Ultreia Bierzo Godello 2020

First wine from Raul Pérez, first Godello (I think)...
What a wine!
The nose is made of lemon peel, white pear, white flowers, almond milk... The palate is very well made with a strong acid drive, making the wine fresh and dynamic. There is a good width, some peary notes all along, a bid wide, spherical mid palate, and a long, powerful and everlasting finish with pear, lemon peel notes that goes for ever and bit. Wow what a wine! I love it!

La Vizcaina La Vitoriana Lomas de Valtuille Bierzo Mencia 2020

On the nose - flowery and lots of blackberries/strawberries.
On the palette - blackberries, sour cherry, and stone/gravel. Somewhat earthy, but not funky.
I was surprised at the tannin (med+) and has good acidity. Would go well with food.

Reminds me of a Beaujolais, but less of that jammy character and more minerality. Longer finish too. Decently complex and interesting wine.

La Vizcaína La del Vivo Lomas de Valtuille White Blend 2019

Such an amazing wine, I feel the Chablis comments are right on, but the touch of reductive notes gives it the depth of a well aged wine from a perfect vintage — 2 months ago

Ultreia La Claudina Bierzo Godello 2016

Wow! I loved this wine. It tastes like a great Chenin Blanc or Savennières, even though it is a Godello. Vanilla and cream with some citric acidity in the finish. Nose is cream and citrus. Stands up to asparagus. — 8 months ago

La Vizcaina El Rapolao Bierzo Mencía 2020

Restaurant was out of my desired st Joseph so I pivoted to this—was excellent, dark raspberry and strawberry with pepper, lavender, bitter herbs. Drinks a bit young but fine with food — 9 months ago
