Lagranja Tempranillo

Lovely price point for the easy to drink Tempranillo. Break it open anytime for a nice medium bodied red with a slightly acidic kick. — 2 days ago

Bodegas Alto Moncayo

Campo de Borja Garnacha 2016

I can almost chew this wine its so big and bold! This is Campo de Borja 2016 Alto Moncayo. The color is deep Burgundy. The legs are slow and thick. The bouquet, fields of lavendar and lilac. The initial palate is amazing!!!!! Huge blackberry, boysenberry and raspberry. Then there is a small hint of cherry in the background somewhere. You can tell these vines are really old. The mid palate is phenomenal. Spice and vanilla- yum! Lots of oak and earth. The thickness reminds me of a juicy filet mignon. The finish is dry and lingering with the feel of butter left behind. Time to serve with dinner:
Filet mignon, baked potato, mustard greens, and a french baguette. Happy St. Valentine’s day to me!!!!!!!

Great wine

Corona de Aragon

Special Selection Garnacha/Cariñena 2017

This beautiful Spanish white wine features a golden tint with a nose of apricots, oranges, limes and a wet driveway. Most of that probably comes from the Garnacha Blanca, but on the palate there's a hint of tropical fruit from the 13% Chardonnay. Minerals are in play from start to finish and the acidity rips at about a medium. You may want some oysters or octopus with this. — a month ago

Pulchrum Cariñena Crespiello 2012

So when you first read anything about this wine the words “rare” and “almost extinct” keep popping up everywhere you go. So whenever I had a chance to try this varietal I leapt at the opportunity. An interesting nose, earthy and leathery with some dusty/musty odors. Made me think of a library. For a wine that supposed to be tanin heavy and historically was only regarded for making vinegar it has a remarkably smooth taste. It comes off bold and brassy with ripe jam plum notes with some flavors of raisins. The wine hits you mid tongue and goes all the way back. You can feel the fullness and the structure of the tannins, but fortunately they don’t come across as bitter. Reminds me of a balsamic-port reduction. Flavor is strong and heavy throughout and even though it doesn’t feel hot and heavy with alcohol on the tongue you definitely can feel it going down your chest as you swallow. 100% Vidadillo from vineyards planted in 1910. 24 months in French and American oak. Very fun to try what is basically a dinosaur of a grape that used to be used for other things, hopefully these “forgotten“ grape varieties will start making a comeback. — 22 days ago

Veraton Campo de Borja Garnacha

This is beautiful and juicy. Lots of texture and ripe purple fruit. What a treat. I could drink this again and again and again. Paired it with a nice mozzarella in carrozza for Valentine’s Day and I’m swooning. My wife’s okay too. — 6 days ago

Fagus de Cotos de Hayas Seleccion Especial Campo de Borja Garnacha 2013

Started our evening off right with this gem. Well blended hints of raisin and plum wrapped in deeper smoky tones. A solid full flavored hit right from the bottle, but which kleenex up after 30 minutes or so. A steal at $15, but a shame we only had one bottle on hand. — a day ago
