Finca Monasterio Rioja Tempranillo 2017

Color cereza de capa media alta, con ribetes ocres.
Vino en el que predomina la madera sobre la fruta. Frutos rojos en compota y, sobre todo, tabaco, chocolate, cuero y café. Café sobre todo. Está madera se intensifica una vez el vino se oxida un poco.
En boca cacao y café. Acidez media. Taninos suaves y redondos. Cuerpo medio.
Suave al paladar, sedoso, amable.
Muy buena elección para quien disfrute de los vinos donde se note la madera.

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Taken to The Pocket in Carmel. Nice dark murky tawny color, opaque. Black fruit nose including notes of blackberries and blueberries, gravel stone, mocha, some menthol and some wood. Tannins are resolved, leaving silky fruit. In a good drinking window. — a month ago

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2017

Sixth and final round of tasting and we all went 0-3 on the reds. This one was so maddeningly obvious. The dill!

Deep ruby color that is thick as tar, there is an enormous amount of vanilla and jammy over-ripened black fruit. Lacking some of the floral notes I’d expect in. Reserva, it makes up for it with eucalyptus and leather, a touch of mint, and plenty of balsamic. There’s also an earthy mushroom thing happening. Moderate tannins, low acids. Plenty of alcohol.

How did we fail here

Blanco Reserva Tres Viñas Rioja Viura Blend 2019

have to say it again. i love whites from northern spain. there is magic there.
this one is a blend of viura, malvasia and garnacha. and surely, malvasia is doing the job. wonderful nose i could never forget, so smooth, so sweet, so gentle… with butter, melon, cream and almond scents.
then it comes to my mouth and i can discover apricot, pear, a bit of smoke, surely melon and some tropical flavors.
like it very much.

So enjoyable! You get a lot of red fruit from the rioja but some tannins and smokiness from the Cab Sav blended in. @ABaC in Barcelona with grilled Guinea fowl. — 2 months ago

Lovely redfruit aromas and flavors, soft tannins, but still pretty youthful, soft and lovely texture, nice complexity, should easily go another 5-7 years, but in a great place now!! — 2 months ago
