Rioja Graciano

2014 from Vendome.
Very earthy, but great balance. Very tasty. Can't remember price, but definitely worth repeating.

John Smith Vineyard Graciano 2015

Very tasty! Like a lighter version of Monastrell/Mourvedre. Good red for warmer weather. Looking forward to seeing more Graciano in the marketplace after the recent discovery of stock mislabeling (Morrastrell vs Monastrell). Hope genetic testing is underway to unravel the Monastrell/Graciano lineage mystery. — 25 days ago

Ripken Vineyard Graciano 2014

This would be my most recent wine with a striking and seldom found factor of rarity. This was such an old school foot-trodden wine with a starry shimmer of tartrate particles and unfined, unfiltered purity in showcasing this rare grape. Seriously put a smile on my face enjoying this one — a month ago

Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2005

What a gem. Sweet integrated tannins, with stewed fruits and coconut. Button mushrooms on the finish. In a really nice place right now. Better than I remembered :) out of Coravin — 2 days ago

Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Vintage 2008 / Confession: I am really bad in recognising #tempranillo. So I ‘punish’ myself regularly to taste and drink it 🤨 Today it makes me really happy. A nice roof tiles colour, a smell with spices, warm cooked summerfruit, but above all: E L E G A N C E. Beautiful mouthfeel, satin, smooth. A wine you can easily underestimate, with finesse. Probably I would not recognise it as #rioja tasted blind, it is such a fine wine. Great effort of this Spanish winegrower. / technical: 85% tempranillo 10% graciano and 5% maturana. 30 months aging in French oak barrels. — a month ago

Lodi Graciano 2014

Stunning wine! Round with tannins that roll around and support rich dishes and cheese as well. My choice over their Temperanillo- which is really good. Production is quite small. Call the winery. — 6 months ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1970

Stink-tastic! The fruit is still holding on and the tannins are fine and resolved. Still has that aged leather, cigar box and smoke profile. Seek this maker out. A QPR champ. — 7 days ago

Viña Bosconia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend

Uploaded via search. Showing a bit more Brett than the 81 tondonia tonight and seems less long lived, but super elegant with well integrated american oak. Love these wines — 16 days ago

Siete (7) Viñas Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2001

Slightly hazy garnet in the glass. Abundant, bosomy nose of black cherry and cigar box. Full-bodied, juicy palate of black cherry, cured tobacco, and balsamic all supported by sturdy medium-plus tannins and medium acidity. Wow! This is what Rioja should be all of the time! Holding up incredibly well 17 years on and seems to still have maybe another five years (at least) left. Steak and game seem like naturals, but don’t miss out on pairing with Southwestern cuisine. — 4 days ago
