Terra d'Hom Priorat Grenache Blend 2004

14 year Priorat...
2004 was a stellar year but supposedly this is past peak. It probably is... as it feels "heavy". But, I should start with the good.

The nose has evolved from very smelly feet on open, through damp basement, to smoky socks. On the palate, some currant leaning raisin suggesting it is the indeed overdue.

It was a little laborious to drink. Big alc still and some tannins still there (good). Overall, I will not push my luck this long again on Priorat. Worth the 48 bucks though!

91+ points

PS wife disagrees and puts it at 8/10 which is high on her scale.

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rouge Mourvedre Blend 2008

Initial notes of soot and caramel. A lovely cool palate with Dry powdery tannins to finish off. If not 100% Mourvèdre it must be close to it. From the warm Mediterranean coast in Bandol. After nearly 3 hours in the decanter the Wine elicited aromas of Lavender and Thyme with hints of raisin. Loved it. — 4 days ago

Les Rouliers Vin de Table de France Grenache Blend

Вначале в носе сквозит легкая молочка, но потом она быстро развеивается. В аромате и вкусе вступают спелая слива, мятая ежевика, красные апельсины, кожа, табак, солод, кофейная гуща, сухая кора, мягкие специи. Плюшевое тело с достаточной кислотностью и шероховатыми, но не резкими танинами. Корректная бочка и удачно замаскированный, однако ощутимый в структуре алкоголь дают тёплый тембр. Спело и чуть уваренно, при этом в меру напряжённо и глубоко. Со временем расправляет плечи. — 21 days ago

Vinya Selva de Mar Empordà Garnacha Blend 2006

Don’t know how much longer this wine has: 2006 showing its age with nose of secondary notes of saddle leather, Earth, soil, forest floor, barnyard and spices. Nice mouthfeel but the tannins were a little tired, brick on edges of glass with truncated finish. Big glycerin quality - hi alcohol. Great to see wines from this DO become more popular — 19 hours ago
