Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Rosado 2008

Карамель, нуга, коньячные ноты, калина, клубника с ботвой, красная смородина, розовая черешня, красный апельсин, лаковая деревяшка. Средне-полное тело с уверенной кислотностью и тонким танином. Энергично, накатисто и полно, с заметным объемом и живым балансом во вкусе. Ещё молодо, с потенциалом, немного горячо, но в целом уверенно и органично в своём напоре. — 7 days ago

@Shay A enjoying the leftovers today - this is soothing the awful performance by the Vikings. Gonna have to get some more of this.

Unánime Gran Vino Tinto Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

This is a great wine for $25. Reminds me of a right bank Bordeaux.
Black and blue fruits along with tobacco, leather, and cedar.
If this was from Bordeaux it would easily be around 50 or so dollars.

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 1991

At £27, the white Tondonias are so unique & 91 was one of my favourites but long gone with 99 & 02 filling it’s shoes so how happy was I to find 3 bottles of this in a shop closing down this week in the original wax sealed bottles 😁

Like White Musar, let these warm up a little to express themselves 😉 For a 27 year old white Rioja it’s sure holding its own with life left in it 👍

📍 Vina Tondonia Blanco Gran Reserva 1991

🏵 93 points

🍇 90% Viura & 10% Malvasia

🍷 Golden amber yellow

👃 Charred orange peel, toasted bread, smokey oak, soggy leaves, wet minerals, lemon oil & honey w/ herbs, sea salt, daisy, crushed hazelnuts & an oxidative sherry undertone - just lovely expressed in a Zalto Universal or burgundy glass 😎

👄 Med sweet, tangy & dry baked orange, lemon & green fallen apple cake in a creamy honey w/ dry rock minerals & an okay tone that’s not too invasive but is drying

🎯 Long dry oaky & slight oily orange, citrus & burnt apple lasting finish w/ the apple lingering on across your dried palate

Riserva Gran Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2001

Brooding and deep, terrifically complex, with a wonderful mouth-watering tartness that begs for another sip. — 17 days ago

Vistamar

Gran Reserva Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2014

Medium purple color, with great legs. Nose not very complex with mostly dark fruit and a whiff of vanilla. The palate gets more interesting with a full body and med+ tannins. Notes of stewed cherries, plum, mocha, green pepper. Finish lingers nicely. For sub-20$, good QPR but not a regular in the rotation. — 17 days ago

@Jeff Savigny Interesting to See Cabernet Shiraz Blend outside of Australia.
