Descendientes de José Palacios

Pétalos Bierzo Mencía 2020


Love this stuff - love this grape, big fan of Alvaro Palacios… perfumed nose of red fruit, red flowers, and gentle spices. Smooth graceful on the palate, elegantly structured, generous red berried fruit, spice, licorice all wrapped in velvet — 24 days ago

Alion Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino 2006

[Tasted on December 1, 2022 at Home]

Tinto Fino (Tempranillo). Wine is aged in 100% new French oak. Black cherry and blackberry fruit, fig, leather, chocolate, earth, toast, smoke and spice. Grippy tannins. Wine is drinking very well.

Bodegas Numanthia

Numanthia Toro Tempranillo 2012

Very modern style Tempranillo. Huge and bombastic with an intense nose mixing violets, cherry, and vanilla. Jammy and creamy, the 2012 has definitely hit the peak of its aging. Tons of red fruit flavors that eventually meld into leather and earth. Slight amount of sulfur-y smoke finishes it off for a long lingering end. — 24 days ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2012

Ming L

Bouquet of cinnamon, anise, fig, and worn leather commingled herb-scented red and dark cherry. Rich yet gentle palate with silky texture. Soft elegant tannins coats the mouth like wearing baby cashmere.

This is a bit more advanced than I thought it would be at 10 years - not a complain.

100% Tempranillo, 2012 is the first vintage without Merlot.

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2012

Ming L

A friend surprised me with this latest vintage release Unico, after we had the Valbuena of the same vintage earlier in the day.
A glorious wine from start to finish. Everything I expected from a wine of this caliber. And we were only scratching the surface.
