Casta Diva Cosecha Miel Alicante Muscat 2014

I ask for a sweet wine not from Jerez (Sherry) and she gives me a taste and says do you want a full glass? To this wine I say F*#& yes! Super acidity makes this drinkable as heck! Passion fruit, papaya, beeswax, honeysuckle and bitter orange notes on the nose and palate. Nice mouthfeel, with body yet super smooth. Paired with chocolate mousse and passion fruit ice cream, I am feeling extremely guilty and already planning my run for tomorrow morning! — 16 days ago

Aluado

Lisboa Alicante Bouschet 2018

"incredibly deep color appears black in the glass, and the aromas and flavors are just as intense. Full-bodied and boldly structured, yet with a delicious freshness - it exudes damson and black cherry flavors accompanied by exotic spices and hints of mocha" — 8 days ago

Tarima Blanco Alicante White Blend

A lovely, dry white. Reminds me of the Sonoma sav blancs that we loved on our trip. From wine and cheese gallery. — 18 days ago

Bodegas los Frailes

Sinergia Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Color is hazy, deep purple. The nose exhibits baked, dried, and stewed black fruit with some brett. On the plate the dark fruit shifts slightly sharper. High alcohol, moderate plus tannins and acid, with a round to lean texture. High alcohol and a long finish. A muscular wine that needs a protein pairing. Best to decant this vintage. — 5 days ago

Bodegas Enrique Mendoza

Reserva Santa Rosa Alicante Red Blend 2015

Tried a more local wine. It’s apparently aged on oak barrels for 17 months. I think they just put it next to the barrels instead of inside it. @Anthony De Blasi — 24 days ago

I think this one maybe needs to grow on me, but my initial thoughts was that the taste was too sharp. After letting it sit for a few minutes, it was better, but definitely not a favorite.

Fondillon Solera 1948 Alicante Monastrell

Brine, smells like an Amontillado Sherry, pale garnet/tawny in color. Ripe apricot and canned peach. Clean expression. Medium acidity. — a month ago
