Love the saline, love the bite. Don't serve with seafood though, too similar. — 10 hours ago


Viñas de Gain Crianza Rioja Tempranillo 2017

Bright cherry nose

A well crafted wine, this has a medium to bigger body, sea salted cherry, oregano, pomegranate seed, orange zest, berry stem.
The tannins are gripping yet subdued by the wines character, and persimmon acidity.
An excellent and contemplative tipple.

Viñas de Gain Selección de Añada Rioja Tempranillo 2001

Still in good shape, dusty red fruit, autumn leaves, hints of mushroom, vanilla, cinnamon and old foudres.
Great ‘entry-level’ Rioja from this reputable producer.

Valdeginés Single Vineyard Rioja Tempranillo 2012

Very dense in colour - impenetrable. It threw a large crust when decanting. On the nose coffee grounds and savoury black cherry, black plum. Sweetish on the full bodied concentrated palate. The savoury plum comes through with rich earthy flavours. Finishing with grainy tannins. Tempranillo seems perfectly suited to the warm dry conditions of Rioja. I couldn’t imagine Tempranillo showing its best in a cool to cold climate. I guess it does exist but it does seem best suited to warm climates. I just finished an interesting article on what grape varietal lasts the longest. From many tastings over many years Jancis concluded it was Tempranillo over Bordeaux with some old Vega Sicilias seemingly timeless. — a month ago
