E Red Blend

This Grenache from Spain is always enjoyable. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, wood, spices, black pepper and light earth.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with a nice mouthfeel.

Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up.

A nice and easy drinking red wine. A good porch wine.

15% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$18.

Pago del Vicario

Blanco de Tempranillo 2019

Tempranillo Blanco. A first for me. Aromas and flavors of yellow apple and fresh herbs. Hint of saline and lemon on the long finish. The freshness just lingers! Overly crisp acidity. This wine stimulates the pallet at the same time it is cleansing it. Outstanding! — a month ago

This wine is unbeatable for the price ($34.99). Some nice bottle age and secondary characteristics, yet acidity remains. Cheers. — 2 days ago

Definitely nice bottle and producer. I haven't tried 2012 yet and now that you reminded me about existence of this wine, I feel the need to taste it 🍷

Bodegas Faustino

Faustino V Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend

Popped and poured; consumed over two days. Really delightful throughout but the most expressive on Day 2. The wine pours a deep ruby color with medium viscosity and no signs of sediment. On the nose, medium intensity with bright, fresh black and red cherries, potpourri, blood orange and spices. On the palate, confirm the fresh cherries, raspberries, fresh dill, dry earth, minerals, and spices. Medium body. Medium tannin. Medium+ acid. The finish lasts for well over a minute and its immensely satisfying. Great on its own and fabulous with food too. A contender for value of the year at sub-$14 USD. — 3 days ago

Marqués de Colbert

Reserva Utiel-Requena Tempranillo Blend 2016

Superb. Equal born of Bobal and Tempranillo. Deep red, a bit smoky and earthy. Although aged in American Oak that had long since softened so it is a complex wine. Also great value. — 4 days ago

Gutierrez Colosia

Oloroso Sangre y Trabajadero Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

Good stuff. On the nose, sweet butterscotch caramels. Full on Werthers Original. You think you’ll be getting a mouth full of candy, but on the palate vibrant acidity, dry, candied pecans. So many layers. Great bang for the buck. — 10 days ago

Partida Creus

VY Vinyater 2015

An interesting wine made with an ancient grape Vinyater, almost forgot about. From 60-year old vines, fermented in stainless and aged for 6 months on lees, medium lemon color with pronounced aromas of fruit, floral and earthy herbs. On the palate flavors of ripe apple and apricot with notes of white flowers and expressive earthy tones, with slight presence of oak. Long finish, ending with fruit, mineral and earthy yeasty character. An unusual white worth seeking out. — 2 days ago

Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild-Vega Sicilia

Macán Clásico Rioja Tempranillo 2015

This is very rustic and austere Rioja. Dark purple color. Good nose with with red fruit, leather, cedar, and cassis. On the pallet the fruit is dialed way down, and the oak and earthy flavors dominate. It is full bodied, high alcohol, with medium plus acidity and a dry medium tannic finish. IMHO it lacks integration but very drinkable and will punch you in the face again and again. Very powerful wine. — 9 days ago
