Grandes vinos con buenos amigos en el Pañol de Avilés , sitio muy recomendable!!! #vinazos #winelovers #muga #aro Capa alta ribete granate, presenta sedimentos, en nariz reducción que da paso a aromas terciarios, notas muy animales, fruta negra madura, hoja de tabaco, profunda intensidad alta. En boca tanino presente, buena acidez y juventud desbordante, para guardar y disfrutar años!!! — 4 days ago

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011

Classy and poised this is showing typically old style Rioja with earth and leather tones. Warm red fruit, lively acidity and fine tannins. A little short finish. Very elegant wine. — 3 days ago

Fermentado en Barrica Viura Malvasia

What a wine this is already. Everything in balance! Great nose of honey and a nice dose of oak. Great acids and very, very long. Great wine for the cellar! — 5 days ago

El Vinculo Paraje Le Golosa Gran Reserva La Mancha Tempranillo 2004

A sister property of the more well-known Tinto Pesquera in La Mancha, this small production 100% Tempranillo is a stunner. Captivating aromas of black tea leaf, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, Chinese herbal tea, vanilla, and a bit barnyard infuse the core of ripe black fruits. The palate is vibrant and smooth with silky but still a bit firm tannins, with fig-like sweet undertone, leading to a long, spicy finish... did I mentioned the nose? So deep, warm, and complex! A gem. — 3 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2004

Сухой лак, дыня, абрикос, желтый изюм, куркума, мята, алоэ, подсолнечное масло, ваниль, крем брюле, сушеные грибы. Полное, маслянистое тело с пышной оксидативной ароматикой и живой, освежающей кислотностью. Хороший естественный баланс спелой южной фруктовости и упругой, сочной структуры. Относительно молодо, бочка светит ещё слишком ярко и, возможно, требует времени. — 3 days ago

Finca Ygay Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1954

Wonderful stuff. A softened sour cherry nose with settled wood that enriches. Great fruit that is completely mature with mushrooms, hints of leather and changing in the glass as the night goes on. Really great stuff with lovely framing acid. Wonderful — 9 days ago

La Social Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Delectable Wine
9.0

A Tempranillo, Graciano and Grenache blend grown in the Rioja Alavesa district, this fruit-forward, seamless red delivers an array of ripe berry, floral and spice qualities. Smooth and persistent, with just the right amount of tannins to frame and focus the wine’s juicy fruit. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Feb 2018) $18 — 11 days ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1970

Delectable Wine
9.4

(aged in American oak barrels for nine years and then in bottle for a minimum of eight more years) Faded brick-red. Aromas of red berries, dried rose, cedar and tobacco show outstanding delineation and pick up woodsmoke and herb nuances as the wine opens up. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering mineral-accented red currant, cherry and blood orange flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. The extremely long, tannin-free finish shows compelling sweetness, lingering florality and an echo of smoky oak. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, May 2017) — 3 days ago
