Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2000

So this is from the time my wife graduated high school. Time flys but wine keeps getting better and reminiscing about the good ol’ days is the best part. Cheers. — 25 days ago

I wish I had graduated then, I'd be a little younger now 😉

La Rioja Alta

Viña Ardanza Reserva Selección Especial Tempranillo Blend 2010

Classically styled Rioja - exactly what one should expect. Lovely plummy fruit, a little heavy on the vanilla notes for my taste. Great backbone of acidity. — 6 days ago

Bodegas Contador

Benjamin Romeo 'Contador' Tempranillo 2008

Bright crimson in colour. Notes of Camphor and Sandalwood together with tarry red and black fruits. A rich flavoursome and savoury palate - medium to full bodied - a fleeting tobacco note. Firm yet silky tannins. Very polished. One of the best Tempranillos (actually 86% Tempranillo and 14% Garnacha) I’ve ever had - up there with Vega Sicilia. Shows the versatility of the Tempranillo grape and its suitability to the warm climes of Spain. One of the 1001 Wines. 98 points from Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate. — 5 days ago

I will keep an eye out for more of his wines. The Contador was brilliant.

Viña Gravonia Crianza Rioja Viura 2012

N: Marzipan, Oranges, almonds, verging on sherry, petrol.
P: weirdly fresh as a daisy, bright, you can sense the long time in American oak, but it has no weight. All this from the “ lesser” vineyard of Gravonia.
A wine to think and drink.
