Bodegas Numanthia

Numanthia Toro Tempranillo 2012

Monster of a wine, stunning depth & extraction / concentration of flavors so impressive: no signs of age - this has at least 20 yrs ahead, tons of ripe almost stewed dark fruit (black profiled blackberry & prune, black cherry) w/rich soil, dusty edges, evolved over time w/some hi-toned expression, scorched Earth, caramel, coffee made appearances... endless length w/sturdy structure yet caressing tannins. I’ve had this wine many times and it never disappoints. — 10 days ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2010

This is not my style but quite the blockbuster wine. Chewy, dense, still tight & lord knows we could have waited...red fruited, what gorgeous fruit & integrated tannins, surprisingly. Drank at sunset, outside, on a gorgeous Sunday evening. — 8 days ago

Malleolus Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2017

Suave aroma a flores, madera. Toque ahumado. Al principio, es ligero. Al final también. Creo que es un vino que le pega más al solomillo que al chuletón. O le falta algo — 3 days ago

Capa alta g lagrima densa. En nariz integra muy bien la fruta y la madera. Es un vino muy aromático. En boca se nota suave. Madera y especias. Canela y cuero. Final largo.

Viñas del Cenit

Cenit Vino de la Tierra de Zamora Tempranillo 2009

What a way to start the week!!
Not showing any age at all! Spanish powerhouse. Beautiful nose with loads of sweets: chocolate, cola, cinnamon, almondpaste, candied cherries. Super smooth and silky mouthfeeling. In the mouth it adds some layer over the sweets which makes it more then simple sweet wine. Well balanced, withholding some acidity and well dosed bitters. Very good wine.

Marqués de Riscal

Seleccionado Rioja Tempranillo 2013

Had a ‘13 in the cellar, aged very well for an inexpensive wine. Deep Ruby with dark edges. Aromas of berry fruit, complex spice, a touch earthy. On the palate, ripe Cherry and blackberry fruits with sweet and peppery spice. Nice approachable tannins that opened up quickly. Good balance and good length. Very Nice. — a month ago

Genius play on old terroir and modern style of wine... Lots of body, silky, strong tannings, good finish. The kind of wine you enjoy more and more with each sip. — 3 days ago

Flor de Pingus Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

Very fun Spanish wine night with the guys. This bottle was still very young, but it has excellent concentration and a beautiful nose. I bet in another 5 years this will be even better. — 8 days ago

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

Great Ribera Del Duoro!! I haven’t had a wine with such a distinct blackberry note on the palate. Really well-balanced example of a Ribera Tempranillo. (CHF 23) — 3 hours ago

Legaris

Reserva Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

Really, really nice Ribera Del Duoro. Deep fruit with balanced, not over-powering oak. A bit pricey (CHF 30), but a nice treat. — 2 days ago
