Fantastic peachy color. Subtle nose of flowers and popcorn. Light overall with a little bite that won’t let you forget it’s there, patiently waiting. Balanced, lingering acid with a flavor of clementine peel. Got juicier over time. — 23 days ago

Vintage 2011 | The summum of balance. Unbelievable good Riesling. I usually think Merkelbach must be put away ten years, but I see I found this wine irresistible already five years ago. 😳 what a treat, butterscotch, smell ánd taste. | Paired with Blanquette de Veau and cheeses. Makes my day. — 6 days ago
Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blueberries, plums, cooked cherries, red currants, oak, tobacco, licorice, earth, cocoa, mocha, coffee, peppercorn, earth, spices and light pencil lead.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked strawberries, earth, chocolates, tobacco, oak, light vanilla, spices, peppercorn and leather.
Medium finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice surprise. A very enjoyable Tempranillo from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy and tangy.
Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. Tannins show up after 90 minutes.
This 7 year old shows nice complexity at this point. Drinking nicely now, and will be even better in the next five years.
I paired it with cheeses and fresh vegetables.
100% Tempranillo grapes were aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months (60% new).
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Third of five... and second favorite of the evening. Lots of deep fruits that were well-balanced with earthy spices and flavors. Beautiful complement to grilled lamb and eggplant. — 10 days ago
