Clos Mesorah Montsant Cariñena Blend 2015

My 3,500th review here! Here is a very tasty one.

This is a great Spanish red blend. Showing red and blue fruits with earth, chocolates, wood, licorice, spices, dark coffee, pencil lead, earth, vegetables, tobacco, peppercorn and espresso.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and Well balanced with nice complexity.

Nice and easy drinking. Spicy finish with fine grained tannins.

Good by itself or with food. Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.

This 5 year old is spicy and earthy. Delicious.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

A blend of old vines Carignan, Garnacha and Syrah. Kosher.

15% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Reserva Herenza Rioja Tempranillo 2014

A pretty color of dark ruby with a wide brick/ copper rim.

Nice nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, cedar, leather, licorice, vanilla, earth, wet leaves, light vegetables, herbs, peppercorn, dark coffee and tobacco leaf.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, raspberries, cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, tobacco, light peppercorn, vegetables, dark coffee and herbs.

Medium plus in finish and spicy, with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice surprise. A very nice red Rioja. Showing nice complexity with a spicy mouthfeel. Nicely balanced and already good all by itself. A good food wine too.

Will age nicely in the next 7 years.

Needs an hour to open up properly and remove the acidity. Gets earthier as it opens up.

That's the kind of Tempranillo I enjoy.

Kosher. Not Mevushal.

14% alcohol by volume.
