Bodegas Contador

Benjamin Romeo 'Contador' Tempranillo 2008

Bright crimson in colour. Notes of Camphor and Sandalwood together with tarry red and black fruits. A rich flavoursome and savoury palate - medium to full bodied - a fleeting tobacco note. Firm yet silky tannins. Very polished. One of the best Tempranillos (actually 86% Tempranillo and 14% Garnacha) I’ve ever had - up there with Vega Sicilia. Shows the versatility of the Tempranillo grape and its suitability to the warm climes of Spain. One of the 1001 Wines. 98 points from Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate. — 2 days ago

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019

A forest fragrance.

Starting to fall in love with the burgundy style. Cedar, slight spice, great fruit, a bit on the bolder side of the spectrum for the varietal.

Producer was recommended by the fella at USQ.

Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild-Vega Sicilia

Macán Rioja Tempranillo 2015

Produced by Vega Sicilia and Bodegas Benjamin De Rothschild, aged in mostly French oak (new and 1 year old) for about 12 months, deep Ruby with aromas of fresh fruits and spice. On the palate flavors of fresh youthful berry fruit, cherry, licorice, vanilla and well integrated cedar. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit character, cacao and cedar character , very nice! — 4 days ago

(Silver Label) Jumilla Monastrell 2019

Last night I opened this 2019 Juan Gil Silver Label Monastrell. This is from the Bodegas Juan Gil Jumilla, Spain, 100% Monastrell (Mourvèdre).

On the nose there is black plum, blackberry, blueberry, black pepper, violet, gravel and earth.

On the palate there is blackberry, blueberry, plum, black cherry, black pepper, spice, soft oak, gravel and earth.

This is a full bodied wine with a smooth sweet juicy mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium supple tannins that move smoothly into a long black & red fruit earthy finish. We are on another weekend and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Silver Oak

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

From magnum - perfect cork. A great sign. Decanted for 4 hours at cellar temp. Served with a grilled grass fed wagyu tenderloin from First Light.

Wine was nice and medium body. Smooth tannins very well integrated. Some fruit was left and good complexity. Great balance and old school Napa.
