Reserva Señorío de P. Peciña Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

Presented double-blind at Tasting Group. The wine pours a deep ruby color with a near opaque core; medium viscosity with moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with notes of dark cherry, brambles, fig, toasted coconut, dill, cedar, olives, leather, earth and baking spices. There seemed to be quite a bit of wood. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish was long, delicious. Initial conclusions: this could be Cabernet Sauvignon (or a blend with other Bordeaux varieties), Syrah (or a blend with other Rhone varieties), Zinfandel, or Tempranillo from France, Italy, the United States, Australia or Spain. However, the amount of coconut and dill suggested this was American oak which had me rule out France, Italy and Australia and while this had some very lovely fruit, I felt this leaned more towards its non-fruit characteristics. So, final conclusion: this is Tempranillo, from Spain, from Rioja, Reserva 2011 from a high-quality, traditional producer like Lopez de Heredia. Ohhhh so close! I love this producer. The wines have so much character. Drink now and through 2033. — 8 days ago

A great note as usual. The use of American Oak in Australia is more prevalent than you might think. Penfolds use it in some of their Red Cuvées.

@Bob McDonald thanks Bob! You bring up a good point about the American oak. I thought about that…but I’m trying to think of a scenario when I drank an Australian wine that screamed American oak the same way. I’ll admit that I haven’t drank as much Aussie Shiraz in the last 15 years as I probably should.

This Rioja blend needs to be open a long time before consuming. Once it settles down, it is a great wine. So complex and rich. Definite fruity Grenache notes mix with deep Tempranillo. A great wine. — 2 years ago

Gran Reserva Señorío de P. Peciña Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Rich, ripe dark fruits with hints of dried fruits. Leather and vanilla, and some earthiness. Soft but present tannins. "Awesomeness" -PG
