VIGNO

Viña Roja Single Vineyard Carignan 2010

Very uncommon blend of Carignan with Syrah AND some Chardonnay.
It tastes still very young this purple red wine with lots of tannins and acidity still present. We noticed that newer vintages are 100 percent Carignan.....

Imanol Garay

Abiatu Tannat Cabernet Franc

Abiatu 2017 de Imanol Garay @imanolgaray. 95% #tannat y 5% #cabernetfranc. 18 meses de crianza en barricas de 228 l y ánforas de arenisca. Madiran. Francia. 14% vol.
Impresionante vista picota de capa media-alta con ribete carmesí. Lágrima fina y densa que tinta la copa.
Aromas que necesitan de aireación para desplegar un abanico cuyo protagonista es el aporte mineral de pedernal que se ve acompañado por sensaciones de fruta roja y negra (arándanos), recuerdos de hoja de tabaco y toques balsámicos.
Ataque inicial picante con un carbónico sutil. Muy buena acidez. Tanino rugoso y sensaciones sedosas. Fresco, complejo y de buen recorrido. Adictivo.
Vino personal de Imanol Garay al que hay que acercarse con la mente abierta y huyendo de estereotipos.
A mi, personalmente, me ha encantado, aunque le queda recorrido y, quizás, dar aún lo mejor de sí con más tiempo.

Piccini

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

El Chianti era famoso en esas mesas domingueras en familia, me llamaba la atención la botella en su canastilla. Este Piccini lo encontré a muy buen precio aprovechando mi salida semanal, en vista: rojo rubí, en nariz: fresco, frutos rojos, cerezas, en boca: equilibrado, los frutos rojos presentes, aterciopelado, taninos suaves, redondo, acompañamos con unos ñoquis a las tres salsas roja, verde y blanca, exquisitos, de segundo ensalada mixta, temperatura de servicio 16° - 18° C Saludos — 5 months ago

TOR Kenward Family Wines

Tierra Roja Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This is amazing - on the nose you get a damp concert barrel room. Deep dark fruit with dark chocolate and big grip with tannins that are semi-eternal. I under rated this last time - this is my wine of the year (so far). No wonder Parker loved this. Cheers — 4 months ago

Pago De Los Balagueses

Vino de Pago Garnacha Tintorera Merlot 2016

So much promise. It needs time in the cantina though.

Roja fruit.

James suckling must be a time traveller because he said it’s a 94. He’s probably coming back to 2020 from 2028.

Bad Brewing Company

The Other Side Series Sour Farmhouse Ale

Nice sour from Bad Brewing down the road in Mason. Brewed with tart Michigan cherries, this actually reminds me a bit like a cross between of Supplication from Russian River and La Roja from Jolly Pumpkin (not quite as good as those, but not too far off, either). Bought this last year, and I definitely think the extra time has really improved it from what I can recall when I first tried it at the brewery. Highly recommend! — 3 months ago

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales

La Roja Artisan Amber Ale 2016

Awesome as always (and much more interesting after a few years in the bottle - this was bottled in September of 2016. I will say that it did NOT go well with the Kobe hamburgers I made for dinner last night (which were great, by the way), but the beer is terrific! — 4 months ago
