Ultreia Saint Jacques Bierzo Mencía 2018

Dam that’s pretty serious wine for $24. 13.5% Old vine Mencia. Loamy mineral. Blackberry. Raspberry. Chalky tannin. Best enjoyed while screaming obscenities at the dumbass POTUS on TV. Yes I’m drinking at 3pm on a Tuesday. — 11 days ago

Y Las Tres Filas Bierzo Mencía 2017

"Tres Filas - meaning " the three rows" - give it a try! From the historic region of Bierzo, this wine features 100% Mencia (a variety exclusive to the Iberian peninsula) and will delight with its rich texture and floral bouquet redolent of violets, blueberry, and musk. Pair it tonight alongside your favorite tapas or with grilled skewers at your next BBQ." — 24 days ago

Hacienda Terra d'Uro

URO Toro Tempranillo 2014

Dark blackish red that slightly clings to the glass. Black fruit and tobacco on the inviting nose. Full bodied palate gives black cherry, black tea, and cigar box. Fine dusty tannins. Medium acidity. Long, luxurious, black velvet finish. Calls out for grilled or roasted meats. Beef will do, but lamb or game would be sublime. Drink now through 2028 or beyond. — 15 days ago

La Del Vivo Bierzo White Blend 2018

As others have said...this shit is ridiculous. Very Chablis-like, but seriously hedonistic. Chablis in ibiza. Attenuated nose, but palate fires on all cylinders, clamshell, salinity, quinine bitterness, brilliantly textured, mouthwatering finish... pure pleasure. #raulperez — 19 days ago

Bodegas Numanthia

Termes Toro Tinto de Toro 2016

I don’t believe I’ve ever had anything from Bodegas Numanthia that I didn’t at least appreciate, much less enjoy. If memory serves I’ve had this label at least 4-5 times and have enjoyed each experience. Dark chocolate shavings, ground coffee, dried blackberries, plums, violets, and stale molasses on the nose with a mouthfeel that’s suave and nicely textured. — 12 days ago

Bodegas Protos

Rueda Verdejo 2017

Standard Spanish Verdejo. Light aromas and flavors of Lemon and pineapple with notes of slate. Hint of apricot. Very mineral driven. A bit light on acidity. Good, but could be better. — 12 days ago
