Campo Eliseo Toro Tempranillo 2002

We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months.

Nose has dusty cherry, dried blackberry, tanned leather, old cedar cigar box, shriveled blueberry, dried black currant, violets, mashed blueberry and dark roast coffee.

Palate has rehydrated blackberry, dried cherries, dried blueberry, dry potting soil, over-ripe black currant, chocolate powder, medium tannins, long finish; polished and beautiful!!

Paired with enchiladas with my homemade sauce from the summer of 2019 tomato harvest, local beef from Columbia Co NY; the dish and the wine lifted each other.

Could hold this bottle until its 20th birthday in proper storage, likely a little more. A perfect and supple cork pull tonight.

Listening to the beautiful vocal prowess tonight of Catherine Russell, life is good. No COVID-19 lockdown in MA yet, but it's gotta be around the corner...

$38, September 2005.

Bodegas Teso La Monja

Almirez Toro Tempranillo 2012

This is a fantastic wine. Great value. Licorice, pipe tobaco, chocolate and black cherries in the nose.
Silky mouth feeling, finishing up to a minute. Drinking smooth.
Fantastic pqr.
I love the bigger brothers too but this is a hidden gem if you are in to powerful yet smooth.

Sunrise Chardonnay 2015

Surprised on how good this is given the bargain price - don’t let the under $10 fool you here: these are good grapes and a nice, hearty Chard with a good flavor and sharp citrusy finish. Lawson Station convenience store for the win on wine! — 13 days ago

Reserva Casillero del Diablo Carménère 2018

Blackberries, black cherry, and a noticeable spice note on the nose, full of black fruits in the mouth with hints of bell pepper and tobacco, nice moderate and smooth finish. Overall very tasty. — 13 days ago
