Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1996

A knockout, for sure. Nose is a bit misleading, seems over the hill, with strong raisin. But the palate is a wonder, smooth and well integrated, mild tannins, long aftertaste. — 6 days ago

Macán Clásico Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Good Rioja. It has all the good things from a Rioja except the licorice. Nice acidity and lots of vanilla and coconut. Good permanence. — 17 days ago

Mandolás Tokaji Dry Furmint Blend 2010

Zero pre-knowledge and I loved what I discovered. I didn’t realize this had a good nine years of age. It’s also the second Tokaji I’ve opened recently backed by Vega Sicilia. It has a golden copper hue. Concentrated syrup of sour apricots, lychee and starfruit with spiced edges. Canned fruit cocktail and cinnamon. — 7 days ago

The disadvantage of wine knowledge is that you often know what to expect. I sometimes long back to knowing nothing ☺️ because there are so many surprises

@Peter van den Besselaar I agree but would amend. The biggest disadvantage is the cost of stimulation. Once you discover champagne you’re screwed.

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2006

Just a baby. Extremely tight when first opened. 45 min later lent to a fragrant aroma out of the glass. Higher acidity but luscious mouth feel. Tannins not integrating yet. Never unhappy to have this but 10+ years would go a long way — a month ago
