Réserve Privée Valle de Guadalupe Nebbiolo 2015

My first Mexican wine. So exiting!

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, sweet cherries, raspberries, light oak, spices, licorice, black pepper, earth, light vegetables and tobacco leaf.

Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with black currants, black cherries, plums, sweet strawberries, earth, spices, light oak, tobacco, herbs and peppercorn.

Nice spicy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice start to my Mexican wine journey.

This 6 years old nebbiolo is drinking very nicely now. Fruit forward with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food. A nice sipping wine right out of the bottle, and better with airtime. Tannins come out after an hour of airtime.

A good quality wine that I would like to revisit in 3 years. I paired it with a Cuban sandwich.

Aged in French oak barrels for 14 months.

13.9% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Singular Tempranillo Blend 2014

Red fruit, blackberry, cocoa nibs, summer herbs on the nose. Red fruit, dill, cocoa powder on the palate with strong notes of maraschino on the finish. Rich and smoothly polished mouthfeel with delicate tannins giving a light pucker at the end. Very well balanced and nicely done. — 19 days ago

In my experience, Tempranillo is a grape that does not readily allow the terroir in which it’s grown to show through very much. It’s usually more about the fruit (or how much oak is used). So for this one to show so an array of non-fruit flavors would seem to indicate it’s found a special home there!

Corona del Valle

Valle de Guadalupe Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Cherry beef jerky, standing outside a leather shop, lavender and hints of five spice powder on the nose. Very soft, smooth, and polished mouthfeel, thick but subtle legs with kirsch, amaretto, blood orange with under layer of summer berry compote and hints of five spice powder comes out on a long finish at the end. Really really nice. — 19 days ago
