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.

Gran Reserva Rioja Alavesa Tempranillo 2006

Very good and is slowly evolving from primary fruits to secondary flavors.
Dark fruits,and grilled meats with leather and tobacco flavors starting to emerge.
Still is youthful and has many more years to go.

Viña Real (CVNE)

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend

Garnet in color. A complex nose of wet cedar, cooked blackberries, grape jelly, eucalyptus, licorice, black olive, and leather. It’s medium bodied with a rich mouthfeel, soft tannin and mellow acidity to create an impressively balanced elegance. There’s flavors of blackberries, graphite, black olives, tobacco, and mocha. It finishes super smooth with long lasting flavors of blackberries, graphite, and black olives. This is gorgeous. — 10 days ago

Finca Ygay Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1954

Wonderful stuff. A softened sour cherry nose with settled wood that enriches. Great fruit that is completely mature with mushrooms, hints of leather and changing in the glass as the night goes on. Really great stuff with lovely framing acid. Wonderful — 14 days ago

9.0

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 — 16 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. — 7 days ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1970

Delectable Wine
9.4

(aged in American oak barrels for nine years and then in bottle for a minimum of eight more years) Faded brick-red. Aromas of red berries, dried rose, cedar and tobacco show outstanding delineation and pick up woodsmoke and herb nuances as the wine opens up. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering mineral-accented red currant, cherry and blood orange flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. The extremely long, tannin-free finish shows compelling sweetness, lingering florality and an echo of smoky oak. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, May 2017) — 7 days ago

Bodegas Valoria

Gran Reserva Viña Valoria Tempranillo Blend 2001

16.5/20 (89/100) Букет ароматов, в котором преобладают третичные тона прелой листвы, кожи и грибов; на заднем плане - красные сушеные ягоды и молочный шоколад. Довольно кислотное с заметным алкоголем и умеренной танинностью. Танины зрелые, округлые. Во вкусе более ягодное, чем в аромате. Весьма неплохая выдержанная риоха. (25.09.17) — 8 days ago
