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 Louis Cru Des Côtes du Rhône Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2010

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!! — 14 days ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Dark ruby coloration with no translucency. On the nose, strong cocoa powder, chocolate, espresso, cherry liquor, blueberry, currants, smokiness, and vanilla. On the palate, full bodied and very soft. Florals, black currant, blackberry, blueberry, anise, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, espresso, forest floor, minerals and a long, long finish. This wine has aged exceptionally well while maintaining good structure. — 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

Domaine Latour-Giraud

Cuvée Charles Maxime Meursault Chardonnay 2019

Quite an impressive village wine! On the nose, ripe fruit, peach, apple, Flint, mineral, driven, mother, earth, with some damp soil and dried mushrooms. Felt the oak was present, but not very abundant, very tart and lean on the pallet. However, end up with a nice fairly creamy texture in the end with the acid prolonged..really a great wine for Village level, didn’t think it was Mersault…delicious wine. Well done — a month ago
