A twelve year old wine still offering a lot of strength and body from dark red fruit supported by soft oaky notes that were well integrated. Remained a bit single note but very pleasant to drink with our pasta that was accidentally seasoned with taco seasoning 😅. Hence the Spanish wine! Paired well. — a month ago
A delightful cava with a refreshing tartness reminiscent of green apple cider — 3 days ago
Tastes of Black Cherry (think in Cherry Garcia ice cream), sultry tobacco, low tannin, easy to drink (finishes like a Pinot Noir) — a month ago
39% Carignan, 21% Petit Verdot, 15% Syrah, 13% Carmenère, 6% Grenache, 6% Mourvedre.
Bright juicy red fruit notes (red currant), contrasted by dark notes of Petit Verdot . Med+ acidity, fine tannin. 100 year old vines.
Paired with duck soup (homemade beef bone broth, caramelized onion, shiitake mushroom, duck breast, anise dumplings), really enjoyed the bright red fruit contrasting the savory, earthy and herbal flavors in the soup.

Little off the beaten path tonight and onto Ribera del Duero. Big cherries and tobacco with a touch of brett with super zingy acidity. The Brett isn’t too much of a turn-off but not my typical cup of tea. That said, it was an interesting departure from my usual haunts. — 9 days ago

A well balanced dry example of the close relationship with Rias Baixas. Very chilled is a wonderful companion for pasta, charcouterie, double cremes. Excelent — 4 days ago
A deep blueberry jam on the schnoz, with a smack of coal fires. Blackjacks on the pallet, finishing fresh and clean if a little violety. It might but sound like it, but I really like it. — 9 days ago
