This 9 year old Spanish wine is very tasty, once it opens up and much better the next day.
Showing black fruits with earth, tobacco, wood, earth, light vegetables, graphite, spices, peppercorn and smoke.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plenty of fruits. Nicely balanced with nice complexity. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.
Long tangy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
Delicious once it opens up.
100% Tempranillo grapes were aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months.

Red cherry, strawberry, plum, fresh herbs, balsamic, and hint of lavender fills an aromatic and deep nose. Soft juicy entry with flavors mimic the nose but lightly candied. Medium to full body that’s beautifully textured. Bright acidity and polished tannins.
This is in great contrast to Alto Moncayo, showing off PN-like elegance. Still packing a punch though. Need to find couple of bottles to cellar. — 15 days ago
This is a really nice Tempranillo from Ribera Del Duero in Spain.
Showing black fruits with tobacco notes, earth, wood, coffee, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, cola and peppercorn.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and a tangy finish.
Good by itself or with food. Needs a few hours to open up properly, so give it time.
Tasty and fruit forward with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

This Andalusian producer does a wonderful red, so jumped at chance to try the blanco, & what a treat,especially for 13$. Solidly medium to big bodied, notes of white flowers, savory lemon curd, & verbena. Begs for food. Made by Luis Perez, who apparently does an old school, non solera aged sherry as well. Unfortunately paired with yet another Mets loss… — 25 days ago
Although the Clos Erasmus pedigree clearly shines through, this is nowhere ready for drinking as advertised by the grower. The tannins need more time, although I doubt if I would ever rate this in the 94-95 range. The palate is full of spices and wood (cedar and oak) but the acid/tannin component could be better balanced. Excellent QPR nevertheless. — 17 days ago
