Anima Negra

Àn Callet Blend 2017

Unusual wine. This is a light red wine that tastes like a Pinot Noir, and which should be consumed chilled. It starts like Pinot Noir, is acidic in the mid-palette, and then has an odd finish with flavors I never tasted before in wine. The finish has smoky, beefy flavors that some will not like, especially if the flavors are not expected. Still, the wine is enjoyable, and gets points for originality. — 20 days ago

Envínate Listan Negro Tintilia 2018

Cranberry, orange bitters and sweet cherry notes (and a heck of a stink!) make this old-vine, high-altitude volcanic soil red from Tenerife a very interesting experience.

High acidity, moderate tannin, really well poised - a tightrope of a wine that offers sweet cherry one second then searing orange zest another. The acidity carries through the finish exceptionally well, making this a wine of great balance.

Fascinating to try this alongside Wiston Estate’s 2014 Rosé, a completely different wine on paper but one that somehow shares so many characteristics with this.

Benje Tenerife Tinto 2019

Unmistakably an island wine per @Jim Wagonfeld. Smoky berries, soft fruit, tobacco, slate/mineral, ash, light acid & tannin on the finish. @Alsu Shakirova says smashed berries on asphalt. Easy. — 7 days ago

Palo Blanco Valle de la Orotava Listan Blanco 2016

I’m a huge fan of maritime climate wines. Lots of salty breezy air here. Nice acids. All in all a great bottle of wine — 18 days ago

Albahra Garnacha Tintorera 2019

Dark purple hue - the concentrated juice of equally dark berries foiled by a sour saltiness. Like Frappato.

Raspberries, canned shredded beef, black marker, pine cone.

Alta Alella

AA Privat Merla Red Blend 2019

Big, fruity, floral concentrate of Spanish Monestral. Intense extracted prunes, ripe dark berries, a basket of fresh stripped cedar.

Has you thinking about fresh pressed violets, finger staining wild Maine blueberries, and boysenberry pancake syrup.
