La Rioja Alta

Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2015

I was expecting this to be tight and tannic. Nope this was lush and silky smooth. Perfect for the Napa cab lover that wants to try something different. The potential for a few more points is there if you can wait. — 18 days ago

Like the sour mouth watering effect of the wine on the palate. Already my last bottle of the case but this still has years of runway ahead. — 14 days ago

Gran Reserva Faustino I Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

Popped and poured, enjoyed over two hours. The 2006 “Faustino I” Gran Reserva pours a deep garnet color with a near opaque core. Medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears and no obvious signs of sediment. On the nose, the wine is vinous with notes of dark, cherry, dried leather, cigar paper, organic earth, pencil eraser, mocha, and a hint of warm spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The body is silky and lean. The finish is tart and long. Tasty now but should drink very well over the next decade. Definitely a more traditionally made Rioja and I’m here for it. Bottle No. 1629/247680. — a month ago

Gran Reserva Viña Albina Tempranillo Blend 2014

I really like this one. Not a particularly heavy body or bouquet. But it is very balanced red. Finished nicely on pallet. Very drinkable without interfering. Currant is the only flavor I’m pulling — 3 months ago
