Tempranillo

Bodegas Gormaz

12 Linajes Reserva Tempranillo 2012

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.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Inky dank dense full of uber ripe red & black fruits, pruney & raisiny coupled with delightful spice cake. Smooth suave exuberant, this producer makes such pure wines trucking in fruit from Cali — 15 days ago

Raposa Villabuena de Alava Rioja Tempranillo 2016

Has a very slight green & stemmy note, olives. Ripe fruit. A little spicy. Medium body. Mineral and fairly tannic but really softens in the glass. Very well put together. — 19 days ago

Cacharel 12 Linajes

Crianza Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

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.

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2010

Vanilla is known as ‘the salt of the baking world’ and this wine embodies that. Velvety smooth vanilla, maybe black cherry or Concord grape, peppercorn, tea leaf. I was skeptical at first finding an 11 year old wine in 2021 that had bottle gimmicks like fake gold wire, but is worth the 30$CAD if you can find it! — 9 days ago
