La Social Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Delectable Wine

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 — 13 days ago

Cerro las Cuevas Selección Terroir Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Эвкалипт, ментол, черешня, чёрная смородина, ежевика, табак, влажная земля, горький шоколад. Мягкое среднее тело со свежей кислотностью и аккуратно упакованными танинами. Молодо, экстрактивно и энергично, с потенциалом. Сейчас без большой комплексности, но с хорошим накатом и бодрящим мятным холодком. 15% довольно ощутимы и алкоголь постепенно начинает припекать, после первой пары бокалов пить становится сложнее. — 17 days ago

Viña Real (CVNE)

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2013

Ruby red in the process of turning brick. On the nose there’s beautiful rose petals, ripe plums, chocolate covered raisins, and dry autumn leaves. Oh yes. It has bright and lively acidity, a medium body, a slippery mouthfeel, and fine-grained tannin. There’s flavors of plums, black cherries, toasty oak, and dirt. It finishes with tart acidity, black cherries, and mint. Highly enjoyable! — 7 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. — 5 days ago

Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1999

SNM (Sunday Night Magnum!) with @Steve Haro @Andrew Neyer @David Moffat @Matt Davis.
Another special wine in tonight’s magnum lineup. This was my contribution. An anniversary gift from my betrothed a few years back. The 2004 was the
#1 rated wine on WS Top 100 in 2013. The 1999 lived up to expectations. Tons of blackberry, mushroom, leather, and awesomeness. More austere than I expected. This can easily go another 5 years without breaking a sweat. Maybe 10. This is one of the last truly special bottles I have, but so happy I cracked it open with good friends who appreciated it. That’s what wine is meant for.

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo

Cherry red. On the nose there’s a minerality of cracked stone above aromas of of rose petals, cherry cola, brown spices, and licorice. It’s light bodied with soft tannin and an uplifting acidity. There’s flavors of tart red berries, strawberries, cinnamon and dried herbs. It finishes with mouth-watering acidity and flavors of strawberries and cinnamon. Give it a slight chill for a delicious summer red. — 7 days ago

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo

Had this a few nights ago at Estrellon before the Comedy Club date night with the Nolets, so I can't remember the specifics. I remember really liking it though!! The label calls it "an expression of modern Rioja" that is aged 1 year in new American and French oak and 2 years in bottle, and states "aromatic red fruits and caramel accents". — 11 days ago
