Ultreia Bierzo Godello

Elegant and beautifully structured white that unfurled for hours. Medium + bodied with striking acidity, this was ripe citrus and orchard fruit with crushed rock and the salinity I want in Godello. — 6 days ago

Mencia Premium 2018

Just had this a few months ago, commented that I wanted to see how it would age. Better hide the rest of that’s what I want. I sure is lovely right now. — 4 days ago

Vinos Valtuille

PV Pago de Valdoneje Bierzo Mencía 2015

Extremely earthy. Aromas and flavors of red and black fruits with hints of smoke, black licorice and roasted mint leaves. Just a touch of Brett. Really dense (including the color) and concentrated. Fine tannins. Rustic but elegant. Thanks a mark B. — 16 days ago

Bodegas Valduero

Reserva Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2012

Stinky seaweed on top of dried cranberry on the nose. Some tertiary notes are emerging on the palate, but out of balance and not integrated. Hot alc and tannins are thin and sharp. Not enough fruit to improve. Drink em if you got em.

Pintia Toro Tempranillo 2011

This really showcases how good a Toro can be. Restrained deep nose of plum, cassis, cedar, mocha, soybean, worn leather, and subtle smoked meat. The palate is rich and velvety, layered with lush ripe fruits, dark chocolate, and warm spices, all strung together by round yet vivid acidity. Silky tannins.
I think this will need another 5 years to reach its peak. Paid about €30 some years ago in Madrid.
