Emilio Ramirez Envinate

Benje Blanco Listan Blanco 2020

I can’t exactly place all the flavors, but there’s a lot going on here. At first almost uncomfortably bitter, but it evolved in the glass for some pleasant acidity, lemon and bitter almond. Beautiful texture. This is a thinking wine. — 18 days ago

Bodegas Hermanos Peciña

Gran Reserva Finca Iscorta de Peciña Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Almost explosive aromas from the get go- beautiful, rustic and piquant are the words I’d use to describe this wine. Fresh and dried red berries, tobacco leaf, some mocha, iron, garrigue, orange peel and slow gin. Salty and savory through the finish. Boisterous even. Excellent value. I think this will be entering its ideal drinking window in 5 years. — 15 hours ago

Semi Dulce White Blend

Menuda bomba , blanco semidulce de Malaga. Lo tomamos para cenar en Tabanca Los Arcos (Ronda) brutal, buenísimo, genial acompañante para tener las mejores conversaciones sobremesa, de hecho nos echaron casi literalmente. — 12 days ago

Odipus

Old Vines Navarra Grenache 2018

Extremely rustic. Aromas and flavors of cedar, wet stones, leather, chinese five spice with a very small amount of cherry fruit. A bit sharp on the finish. Better with food. Give this one a long decant. Better the second day. — 14 days ago

Ferrer Bobet

Vinyes Velles Priorat Garnacha Carignan 2016

Ming L
9.1

The nose opens with ripe plum, blackberry, and hint of cured meat, then turns to predominately red fruits such as raspberry and cherry cola, with subtle spices and fresh herbs. Great fruit concentration on a fresh yet plush palate. Fine grained tannins.

Don’t drink much Priorat and not much Carignan, so this 70/30 old vine Carignan/Garnacha is a revelation.

Marqués de Murrieta

Finca Ygay Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Popped and poured, consumed over two days. The 2016 Marqués de Murrieta Reserva pours a dark ruby color with translucent core and watery rim; medium viscosity. Stains the glass a bit. Medium+ intensity. Dark cherry, blackberries, pipe tobacco, black licorice, fresh herbs, baking spices, butter soft leather and some cedar. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannin, medium acid. Again with the dark cherry and blackberry fruit, some balsamic notes and spices. A very giving wine that’s so easy to enjoy. Outrageous value. — 3 days ago

Isaac Fernandez Seleccion

Bovale Utiel-Requena Old Vines Bobal 2019

Nicely made and exuding character. Nose has bright, deep plummy fruit, along with nice, fragrant spice and a wisp of smoke. Mouthfilling, pure fruit on the palate, with a light touch, finish turns savory and shows lots of stony minerality. Nice acids and a bit of soft, chalky tannin comes out at the end. Terrific value. — 7 days ago
