Rioja Tempranillo Rosé Blend 2018


El Coto Rioja Rosado... 90% Tempranillo 10% Garnacha. Chilled on a hot summer evening and served alongside chicken-celery-lemon-garlic-zucchini over chunky pasta. Threw some of the same wine into the recipe. Delicious, refreshing, and a good complement to the Mediterranean style dish. — 4 days ago

Cerro Añon Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Gorgeous Stunning aromatics on this: soaring & decadent kirsch liqueur, blueberry pie, spice cake, cedar, vanilla, pipe tobacco, coconut and so much more. Deep dark dense and oh so plush, velvety soft caressing tannins and lubricating acidity. Only very slight bricking, this has many more years ahead: straddling the line between traditional & new international style Rioja - .2 bump for $20 price tag. Buy a case of this stuff — 6 days ago

Viña Ardanza Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2009

Value aged Rioja at its absolute best. At eleven years old, the color is definitely more on the brownish reddish side with a watery rim. Rustic nose with oak, tobacco, leather, smoke and hints of raspberry. The mouthfeel is decadent with rustic and earthy flavors plus round tannings and a profound acidic finish. Great find that will delight at the dinner table just now or in the cellar years from now. There are several bottles left out there, happy searching. — 12 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

The color is light ruby. The nose is complex with raspberry, plum, dried cherry, leather, and hints of wet forests floor, graphite and maybe some smoke. On the pallet there’s a certain finessse, great flow, pronounced acidity (may be vintage specific), round tannings, and an adequate finish. Probably the most balanced Rioja I’ve ever tasted. — 3 days ago

Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2009

Bold and oaky, but not sharp. Feels like this is on a nice aging trajectory. It will be nice to see this in 10yrs. Paired with chili dusted skirt steak, roasted potatoes and asparagus. Yes please. — 7 days ago

Viña Alberdi Reserva Tempranillo 2007

Ardanza not Alberdi. Overdelivers per usual. Dark, plush, smooth, very well integrated structurally. You def have to be into American oak but beyond that you’ll find cherries, raspberry jam, leather, cloves, balsamic, truffle, earth and mocha. — 5 days ago

Gran Reserva Prado Enea Rioja Tempranillo 2006


Dark ruby in color with a wide brick/ reddish rim.

Great nose of black currants, sweet cherries, blueberries, wood, cloves, vanilla, espresso, cola, light vegetables, tobacco leaf, cumin, saffron, graphite, herbs, Indian spices, earth and dark chocolates.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with currants, cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, oak, spices, earth, dark chocolates, graphite, peppercorn and leather.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a delicious 14 year old Rioja Gran Reserva. Drinking very nicely now, but still a little hot at the back of the throat. Tangy and soft with great complexity especially on the nose.

Needs 2 hours open up, and even better after 3 hours.

A nice wine to pair with food, but definitely good by itself too. Loved smelling on it for a long time.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me. Really enjoyed it.

Robert Parker 96 points. Wine Spectator 92 points.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and 10% Mazuelo and Graciano.

14% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Viña Tondonia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

Usually not a fan of oaky wines but this is the exception. Tart cherries, American oak, mid-weight, silky texture, elegant. Paired with Cuban black beans and rice - classic. — 19 hours ago
