First drink since finishing an antibiotic course and awaiting my root canal in a few weeks. This is zippy fresh but has enough of a bass note- it reminds of some of the amphorae matured trepat I’ve tried-so I stay interested. Also doesn’t shout summer wine. Blackberries, & compote, good balance between fruit & dry. Nicely done for about 19$. Jose Pastor importer — 11 days ago
Not overwhelmingly tannic, heady raspberry with something dark. — 16 days ago
Bigger than most from this region. Big alcohol but really well balanced. Very dark fruits. Old leather. Old black plums. — 3 days ago
This wine never stops amazing me. Slightly oxidative with tropical fruits and a dash of minerality. As good as anything 5x the price. — 10 days ago
Waxy candied citrus. Wet gravel. Had a ‘14 several years ago but don’t remember it much. Fun to see your wine spidey senses evolve, or at least I like to think so. Found out today that the winemakers who crafted this wine have since ceased making wine. That is a bummer. — 12 days ago
#garnachatintorera #alicantebouschet I’m stoked because I tasted it blind and thought this is Tintorera! And I was right. Deep color. With Tintorera I’m starting to understand the vibe. It’s Syrah color and aromas (savoury, spicy and peppery) with the richness and juiciness of Garnacha Tinta. This is a Basque winery that I believe just buys bulk and commercializes their wines, or at least this series of wines. More or less 6€ a bottle in #Spain its a killer deal of a wine. I personally am not a fan of cartoon like labels. — 24 days ago
A rich, dark red, notes of black cherry, fig + cassis with secondary flavors of cocoa, spice + smoke. Balanced acidity + tannins on the palate. (Medium-bodied Red) — 10 days ago
I drink so much of this and rarely post a review with notes. This is our go-to regular Rioja. We are lucky that our local wine store gets a lot and sells it well below Total Wine's price.
Deep ruby. Red cherry, blackberry, vanilla, and earth on both nose and palate. Dry, medium acidity, medium + alcohol, full-bodied, medium + tannins. Can age or great now.

What a cider should be! Funky, not too sweet. Effervescent but not flat. (I’m rolling my eyes at my own review but I’m not kidding it’s delicious!) 😂 — 5 days ago
