El Marciano Grenache 2017

Dichotomy of concrete fresh and inky teeth staining chewy Garnacha. At about 15% ABV, it’s youthful and lively as it is dark and concentrated (70 year old vines). I’ve read conflicting reports on stem inclusion, but either way there is significant tannin and backbone to match the power.

The deepest dark berry concentrate, black licorice, black pepper, and bitter mocha.

Villa de Corullon Bierzo Mencía 2011

Rich crimson in colour. Ultra savoury on nose and palate - lacking the fruit it had a few years ago - still with M+ acidity and M- Tannins. Aromas of rose petals, earth and gravel. Have loved the Mencia grape from the first time I tasted it. It has the ability to produce flavoursome dry reds from old low yielding hillside plots on poor schist dominated soils. One of the 1001 Wines. — 10 days ago

9.0

Nose of black fruit, oak, tar, earth, and some coffee, which emerges after some time in the glass, palate of black fruit, and dirt, with old leather, backed by dusty tannins. Black fruit on the dry, dusty finish.

La Vizcaina La Poulosa Bierzo Mencía 2016

Really interesting mencía. First impression was of aged Rioja, leathery goodness, light to medium bodied. Evolved and opened up to more red cherry fruit with hint of smoke. So delicious and fun to drink. — 6 days ago

Bodegas Mauro

Castilla y León Red Blend 2016

Produced by the Mauro winery in Castilla-León, a project of Mariano García, a winemaker known for being technical manager of Vega Sicilia for 30 years. A blend of Tempranillo with 5% Syrah and aged for 16 months in French oak. Ripe Berry fruits, powerful yet elegant, with spice & smoky notes on full, very tight, tannins. Lingering finish, nice mouthfeel, ending with mineral earthy tones, a joy to Sip!! Tasting great, has much more aging potential. Very Nice! — 3 days ago

Dehesa la Granja Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León Tempranillo 2004

I’m a sucker for Spanish Tempranillo. This wine seems less fruity and simultaneously more tannic than what I normally have. But still delicious. This is my first non Rioja Tempranillo. This is from the Castilla and Leon region. Typical? I’m eager to find out. — 15 days ago
