Probably my favorite and, in my mind, the most consistent Spanish wine out there. A deep dark plum color in the glass. The nose absolutely shines with cedar and plenty of spice. There’s a bit of smoke here along with cherry cola and a little more spice. Dried herbs and chocolate round things out.
A preponderance of Tempranillo with a nice chunk of Garnacha in the blend. Obviously still so young but readily approachable and enjoyable now. The extended aging makes a world of difference with this wine vintage in and vintage out. Rich and full of personality, this is a beautiful wine that’s just going to continue to grow with age. — 9 days ago
2020 vintage from Northwest Spain’s Galacia region, with moderate tannin before resting, think Merlot. Balanced. Tart cherry, blackberry, some sort of stone on the end. Really nice. Pleasant mouth filling tartness on the finish and dryness, but after the bottle is open a for a bit it’s less dry. — 8 days ago
This wine is drinking great — mellow tannins but still some pretty complex and delicious fruit for a 16 year old wine. 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha. — 12 days ago
Jorge Ordonez is consistent and fairly priced always. Ripe pear, peach, citrus, acid. Food friendly but fine on its own. — 2 days ago
