2014 First day I really liked it. Second day even better. Third day not sure. Really interesting flavors. I enjoyed it and I’m gonna buy more. Maybe let it sit for a year or two. — 17 hours ago

I probably would have liked it better but it got smoked by the Bressia.

Rara Avis Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León Albarin 2011

Insistent. Demanding. Takes over your palate and doesn't let it go for a long, long time. Albarín, which is possibly clonal Albariño, possibly Savagnin, or possibly the offspring of the two, depending on who you're talking to. Aged under flor for 3 years, and it definitely carries those biological aging notes along with some oxidation, but not at the expense of freshness. Wow. I mean wow. I mean... — 6 days ago

Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo 2014

PnP. Plenty of ripe black fruits with some dried fig, bramble, graphite, and a hint of white pepper on the nose. Black fruits confirmed on the palate, blackberry, black cherry, some spice on the finish. Smoooooth tannins, well-integrated and overall a very balanced wine with medium plus body and finish. First foray into Ribera del Duero, won’t be my last. — 14 days ago
