Vega del Cega Valdepeñas Rosé Tempranillo Garnacha 2020

Hermoso color rosa medio-palido. Tiene olores a frutos rojos, huele a dulce y se siente un poco la acidez en la nariz. El olor es muy fresco y no huele mucho a alcohol. En boca es corto, y fresco, muy ligero. No se siente el alcohol al tomarlo. Predomina el sabor a frambuesa, dulce caramelo en la punta de la lengua y un poco de acidez al tragar. — 8 days ago

Lentura Bierzo Garnacha Tintorera Mencía 2018

New producer to me, but this was seriously incredible. Touch reductive at first, but really shined with air. All about the texture for me. Plenty of that dusty strawberry fruit from garnacha tintorera (Alicante) with the metallic and earthy quality Mencia can give you. Amy said it reminded her of cru beaujolais and honestly if I closed my eyes i could imagine foillard. No lie — 4 days ago

Esencia Rural

Pampaneo Ancestral Airén

Local somm said it paired well with swimming pools, so that is where I drank it. Excellent choice. Creamier mouthfeel than sparkling wine made the champagne way. Raspberries in the background with slight toast up front, but that is the extent of the complexity. Bubbles disappear too quickly, but great until then. — 18 days ago

Raul Pérez

Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía 2018

Dark yet fresh, vivid and bursting out of the glass with ripe sour cherry, violets and crushed rocks. A touch of reduction.
On the palate this is so fresh. Mid weight, juicy, crunchy tannins, juicy acidity. Chunky yet not rustic.
This has personality, loads of interesting edges, quite some depth and brilliant drinkability, esp. slightly chilled.
Brilliant value, too!

Ossian

Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León Verdejo 2015

A six-year-old old vine Verdejo. Tastes way more aged than I expected… Dried mango, apricot, strong minerality, salinity, Marcona almond, caramel, dried herbs as well. High levels of linear acidity, full bodied but not fat. 14.5%. Grippy phenolics coating the mouth. — 6 days ago

Vico Bierzo Mencía

When winemakers devote themselves to the mastery of one grape, every bottling from top to bottom tends to be exceptional.

Such is the case with Raul Perez and his consistent ability to make Mencia bloom.

Vico is aromatically rich and complex. Cedar, new leather, blackberry, black currant, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee.

Glad to hear @M. Christopher Roebuck ! Let me know what you think. If you ever get a chance to try his la penitencia I highly recommend. I think it’s my highest rated wine to date
