Tempranillo Blend

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.

92 points.

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.

Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2009

We must be getting old as my homeboy & I remembered when this was 20$— now it’s north of 79$. First, that incredible, shimmering copper color, as if a siren call to the rewards that await. So many layers that never seem to stop: sherry- like on nose, with high pitched iodine, but deeper & round on the palate. Hints of bergamot, cinnamon bark, oyster mushroom, clove, faded citrus fruit. So so alive. What a treat. Part 2 with slow roasted grapefruit chicken, roasted eggplant with yogurt sauce & the early innings of a another wild Mets win. — 9 days ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1988

A big old wine of classical enjoyment. Valbuena 5 of 1988 is blasting beyond my expectation. The aroma is so unbelievably complicated that you almost forgot its millesime. The acidity and body are still at their heyday. Valbuena always outperforms my view on tempranillo. Recommend to age 5 years more this vintage. — 15 days ago
