Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

Cubillo is a beautiful anomaly in a sea of $25 wines.

It’s the youngest of the lot, but the signature stamp is there, so obviously LDH Tempranillo.

Velvet milk chocolate, ripe black cherries, brand new leather boots. Rich and loaded with cocoa and coffee and raisiny red berries.

It looks like motor oil. Heck it has almost a decade in bottle. Plenty of acid to smooth out over time.

We should be stock piling this - quality and price don’t intersect so well very often.

Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2010

Shay A
9.3

Upon opening, the aromatics had a distinct petrol/Riesling like flair to it. After 30mins of being open, it got fleshier and blossomed. A somewhat maderized/oxidized black cherry and rhubarb spice on the nose with a whiff of fino sherry. Palate is ever changing with tangerine, roasted orange marmalade, some sort of Italian herbs, and brown sugar coated raspberries. Excellent acidity here. Juicy without being flabby or sharp. I suggest letting this breathe an hour or so before consuming. — a month ago
