Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2009

All bow to our host who broke out the big guns for a spicy cod meal he prepared. As the only wine I’ve ever witnessed such grotesque price appreciation (from 20 to 100, within a five year span?), it’s hard not to project all kinds of feelings & opinions about it. Still, it remains a wine of reflection & complexity, not to mention of a unique deep copper color I’ve always adored. Such waves of strange & wonderful flavors, including dried hibiscus, turmeric, licorice & porcini mushrooms. Moderate acidity, like an elegant aunt who dresses just right. And still young, within the Lopez universe. — 2 months ago

One must savor this “rose” Lopez. Available infrequently but worth the wait. Oxidized style that lingers on your tongue with a minerally zest that flows.

Viña Gravonia Crianza Rioja Viura 2012

My first time drinking a white wine from Lopez De Heredia and it’s unlike any wine I’ve ever had before. Very fragrant and a lot of different tastes coming to the forefront. Bruised apple, quince, beeswax and honey. Some almond, slight oxidation and salinity like a fino sherry. This is a big and unusual wine. Not something I would drink daily, but enjoyed it as much on a taste as on an intellectual level. — 5 months ago

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Total Wine, Fla lineup: for bout 16$ on sale, am rather intrigued. Plenty of stuffing but all pillow soft & round with some serious oak aging. Solidly medium bodied, dill & crushed red fruits. Am a Lopez or Rioja Alta man typically, but when in Rome… — 4 months ago

Château Simone

Palette White Rhone Blend 2014

A cerebral experience. Little aromatic teases peak through after a good decant, which I'd recommend. Perfumed flowers. Honey, beeswax, orange zest, a delicate dish of potpourri. Interesting angles and textures. Salty, waxy, oily, with a sour apricot finish that doesn't give.

This reminds me of the Lopez de Heredia Rosatos and Bianco. The same waxy salty tradeoff of honey and citrus. Maybe it's a reasonable comparison or maybe my brain is just reaching for connections.

Jesera Collio Pinot Grigio

Walked into a beautifully curated shop near Palm Springs, California & asked for their favorite current 20$ & under bottle, & this what I walked away with. Skin contact PG, so a distant cousin to its straight, flowery relations. The color is a remarkably pale gold, gorgeous. Iodine, marzipan, grapefruit on nose.On the palate almond skin, bitter orange zest, other dried citrus. Medium plus acidity & a not viscous texture ( in a good way). Quite inviting & accessible, like a Lopez de Heredia for beginners. — a month ago

Vino Sexto Elemento Bobal

Forgot how much I loved this deep, inky purple wine. It’s rich, velvety - enjoy it with food, but a great red to slowly sip and savor. Worth the treat. — 4 months ago
