Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Decant this. Tobacco leaves & bing cherries with spicy oak. The oak recedes with time in the decanter and the wine feels more complete. Woody tannins add complexity & texture to the finish. Love this and it stands way out in the Crianza category. — 6 days ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2005

Still have a few bottles left in my cellar. Nice Ruby red with an elegant bouquet of ripe berry fruits, spice with earthy tones, a traditional Rioja. On the palate, the wine was silky smooth with layers of flavors, berry/cherry, tobacco, smoky cedar, dark fruit, vanilla spice, very well balanced with fine tannins and a clean structure ending with a nice lingering finish. Aging well! Delicious! Good value! — 23 days ago

Viña Ardanza Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

An old trusted friend, a special year too. It’s not just the Gorgeous black fruits, or the perfect oak monster integration, or the balance-it’s really the lift & freshness that elevates this into one of my favorites, period. With some age it has also shedded some of its monolithic early character too. Love to taste in another five to seven years. Oh, & a remarkable value for about 28$ at its lowest price. — 11 days ago

Very smooth and deep without being as heavy handed as a Malbec, in a sense that it is very enjoyable on a warm summer evening. — 12 days ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2009

Better bottle than my last though still not the best vintage here. A little cheesy, then nutty. Will drink these sooner rather than later — 24 days ago
