Enjoying a very nice Rioja tonight. Deep ruby color. Medium intensity nose with notes of red plums, coffee and a little bit of road tar. Great flavors of dark fruit, chocolate covered cherries, cola, and a hint of licorice. Medium acidity and medium tannins. Very nicely integrated and a very nice finish with a very slight hint of mint. — 3 months ago
Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!
What a treat this will be in 10yrs! Very youthful right now. I don’t know how the grapes are used here, but it was reminiscent of whole cluster Pinot. Similarities to the Antica Terra Angelical wine but more spice and denser core. Lifted and energetic profile. Smoked and slightly bloodied with iron and smoky beef jerky. The finish showed tart mulberries and baked black cherries. Oak wasn’t very noticeable. Hold. — 2 months ago
We are kicking off the weekend with a beautiful Tempranillo blend tonight. We both ordered the Lobster and Shrimp Fra Diavolo fettuccine. The aromatics of this wine are fantastic. I get a lot of dried flowers and vanilla. Lisa picks up hints of almond extract and bubblegum. I know. Not a traditional note! On the palate there are great tastes of plums, wild berries and maybe strawberries. The tannins are still a little gritty but the acidity is perfect and keeps this wine very balanced. It paired very nicely with the spiceness of the fra diavolo. The finish is long but the tannic grip tells me this wine is still a baby. — a month ago
