Finca Valpiedra

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011

Black cherry and tobacco from the get-go, with secondary aromas and flavors of mint, herbs, and wet earth. Super grippy tannins and quite acidic. Powerful and masculine, decent finish, too! — 11 days ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2004

Ordered off a wine list. Nice bright dark reddish brick color. Almost opaque. Fun nose. Notes of bing cherry, cedar, earth and a little menthol. Rich and sharp in the mouth. This needed air to come around. Still a baby. — 4 days ago
