Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2009

this one is really nice but still too powerful for my tastes. could use another 10 years to soften the oak and then will be superb. — a day ago

Collide California Red Blend 2016

What a great blend - 38% Tempranillo, 23% Petit Sirah, 23% Carignan, 16% Graciano

At first sip, there is a candy flavor but by the third there is dimension and complex flavor. Really hits mid-palate and lingers without being obnoxious.

Gran Reserva RIoja Tempranillo Blend 2011

I simply love oak aged red wines from Spain. Just as it appears patience In aging helps, so does patience in drinking. Lol. Or is it me? Why does the LAST glass of a bottle of Rioja always seem the best? — 2 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

I’m always excited to try a new vintage of Tondonia and earlier this week, I got to try the 2007 for the first time. A significant departure from the 2006 which was (and remains currently) open for business with very little coaxing, the 2007 is austere and loaded with VA. Some aggressive decanting was able to get the VA to blow off and slowly but surely it started to open up, revealing some high quality and seriously dark cherry fruit. A heady, serious wine that needs loads of patience right now if this bottle is representative. Hold or decant for 24 hours. — 15 days ago

Estate York Mountain Syrah Blend 2016

This is a terrific wine by Anthony Yount (Denner, plus his other label for his white wines, Kinero Cellars). A blend of syrah, graciano, and grenache, this wine is balanced, has sweet, integrated tannins (even at this young age), and intense berry flavors. Kept evolving in the glass, so I’m sure this will develop for quite a few more years. A terrific wine by a really talented winemaker! — a month ago
