Reserva Rioja Tempranillo

2015 vintage- Very nice oak and leather taste that hits your taste buds right away. Then, linger a vanilla, cherry, and earl Grey tea profile at the back of your tongue. Very soft and smooth but complex if you let it breathe for 45 mins. — 4 months ago

Maus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Popped and poured; enjoyed over two days with consistent notes. This is my first bottle of the 2018 “Maus” which shares the same clonal material as the fruit from Montecillo but sits about 1000ft below. No formal notes. The overall impression of freshness is unassailable. At this stage, the wine is super duper primary with cassis and tobacco taking a dominant role. There seems to be some fairly good tannin management happening because the effect on the palate is moderate. Acid, on the other hand, is medium++ and there may be a touch of VA; all good though. This is a very light, elegant and natural expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that’s showing a bit green at the moment however, I feel very confident that time will help this flesh out. Patience will be rewarded. Drink from 2025-2038+. — a year ago

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo 2018

87% Tempranillo and Garnacha 13%.
Aged in American Oak Barrels 18 months. Nose is tame with stone fruits. Taste is clean cherries, oak, pepper, leather. Dry finish, but leaves tannins on the tongue. Pretty decent stuff for less than $10. Happy Valentine’s Day!
