Krankl Wine

The Third Twin Graciano 2014

A very plush wine and similar in feel to other Krankl wines except very different flavor profile. Hard to explain other than I have never had a straight Graciano. Lavender, mint, Indian spices, and pepper. I would love to try this again in 4-5 years. — 15 days ago

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.

My contribution for the evening. I’m posting my previous review of this wine below as it’s been consistent the few times I’ve had it over the last 12-18 months. Love these wines!

Youthful. Icredibly perfumed with typical sweet dill and coconut American oak on the nose. Gosh, I could smell this stuff all day. Aside from needing time away, it needs roughly an hour of decanting to hit stride. Tobacco, cherry tart, and great herbal nuances on the finish.

Between this and the 05 Cimarossa Ponente, these were my wines of the night. Love these bottles from La Rioja Alta. Dark black fruit, hint of sweet fig, chocolate, tobacco, herbs, spiciness on the finish. Elegant on the back end, yet had just enough grip and jagged edges that it makes you keep coming back for more. Nice. I'd really like to buy cases of these and just put them away and forgot it existed for 25 more years or so. Fat chance.

Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend

Full bodied af. Super fragrant. Smelling notes of blackberry, plum, vanilla, tastes like blackberry pie. Long af finish and acidic up front but makes you feel warm and tingly goin down — 16 days ago

Bodegas Corral

Reserva Don Jacobo Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011

Excellent value Reserva in a great place. Loads of red and black fruit, cherries and plums soaked in vanilla. Touch of wet tobacco. Great now but can handle another 4-6 years of cellaring. — 22 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

Tondonia does it again I don’t know another wine that so consistently outperforms and drinks like a wine three times the price. So elegant, so fresh, so yummy. — 2 days ago
